ISO 9001:2015 is the internationally recognised standard to implement Quality Management System (QMS) in organizations.
What is ISO 9001:2015?
ISO 9001:2015 is a widely-recognised Quality Management System that belongs to the ISO 9000 family of standards. It helps organisations meet the needs and expectations of their customers. The scope of the standard was not changed from the 2008 version but the structure and core terms were modified to make it easy for organisations to integrate it with other international management system standards. ISO 9001:2015 focuses more on performance than its predecessors.
The ISO 9000 standard family was first published by International Organisation for Standardisation (ISO) in 1987. The main objective was to create a set of quality assurance requirements related to a product or service that different government procurement agencies had to meet. This helped to maintain the quality of the product or service across different organisations. The standard has been revised a few times to stay relevant and address the changes in the business world.
It is important to note here that ISO does not certify organisations itself with ISO 9001 or other standards. There are authorised certification bodies such as Globus that audit the organisations interested in getting certified and then issue ISO 9001 accredited certificates.
