Raising Standards Around The Globe With ISO 9001
With organisations around the world looking to become ISO 9001 certified, one company is offering a new approach.
Norwich (I-Newswire) May 8, 2012 - The UK-based ISO certification company, QMS International PLC, has developed a way of enabling businesses to reach international standards within significantly reduced timeframes and at a lower cost. This makes popular certifications, such as ISO 9001 for Quality Management more achievable for businesses and organisations of all sizes, including SMEs.
QMS International has offices around the globe, and is able to offer ISO certification in over 60 countries worldwide. The streamlined certification model has proven extremely popular with clients from all walks of business.
Peter Gamble, Managing Director of QMS International says: “One of the key drivers for streamlining the certification process was to enable small and medium sized companies to achieve ISO certification.”
Traditionally, the certification process has been long, expensive and time-consuming – often putting ISO certification beyond the reach of smaller businesses. With QMS’s certification system, businesses are given support to help them achieve the standards laid out by the International Organisation of Standardisation.
Having recently achieved the ISO 9001 certification, Rebecca Smith, Managing Director of a Norwich-based marketing company says: “The QMS model has made ISO 9001 and ISO 14001 certification attainable for our business – and we have certainly seen doors open since we achieved them. Literally within weeks of receiving our certification, we won our first public sector tender.”
ISO certification is seen as a mark of high standards around the globe, especially within public sector organisations such as schools and local government. The most popular certification is ISO 9001, which sets the standard for Quality Management in any type of business.
Mr Gamble says: “ISO 9001 is both flexible and scalable, so that it can be applied to any size of organisation. It’s important to let small businesses have access to ISO certification, because reaching the standard can help them get all the elements in place to help them grow sustainably.”
