Can you afford not to implement ISO 9001 into your organisation?
Many businesses will gain ISO 9001 certification because their customers require proof that the organisation has an audited quality management system.
Some companies will only work with suppliers with ISO 9001 certification. Public sector tenders, for example, will require certification. It will also give you an edge on your competitors when you are tendering for private sector contracts.
To achieve certification, you will have to pass a regular audit by an accredited certification body. This provides your customers with evidence that you are doing everything required to improve and maintain quality at a high and consistent level.
Continual assessment and improvement of management systems will ensure your entire business becomes more customer focussed, resulting in satisfied customers and better retention rates.
ISO 9001:2015 revision
The standard has recently been revised and organisations currently certified have until September 2018 to complete their transition.
The changes include greater emphasis on the importance of leadership from top management. Risk assessment and risk management have been prioritised and the high-level structure is more about managing processes and less about documentation.
If you are an existing client, ACS Registrars are not charging an additional fee for any of the changes required for the revision. Your usual fee for certification will still apply.
The sooner you start the process the more time you will have to make the necessary management system changes before your audit.
We are anticipating a late dash to get certified before the transition period ends in September 2018. Get your consultation booked before the rush starts.
