Adopted by over 1 million organisations worldwide, ISO 9001 Quality Management Certification can benefit any organisation. It was developed as a powerful business management system to continually improve and develop business, help with customer satisfaction, reduce the need for tender compliance, assist with stakeholder involvement and generally improve the sustainability of the business and the quality of its products and services.

But ISO 9001 Quality Management Certification is much more than just a quality standard - it is a complete business standard and helps organisations consider and improve resilience against risk, take advantage of opportunities and to set business improvement objectives. ISO 9001 provides the tools required to help us think about how each process links together, and whether these can be made more robust & effective to improve quality throughout the business.

ISO 9001 is written to be used by businesses of any size and from any industry sector.

Frequently asked question view all

Do I still need a Management Representative for my ISO certification?

The role of the Management Representative is to manage your ISO certified system, to ensure that it is effectively implemented and to prepare it for the annual surveillance visits.

The most recent versions of the standards no longer require a Management Representative, with these responsibilities now transfered to the "top management", this is to ensure that they are fully aware that they are responsible for the effectiveness of the organisation's management system. Thry may also oversee internal audits to ensure the ISO management system is performing as required.

2SB's recommendation is that the "top management" delegate these responsibilities for the management system to a committed member of staff with "top management" still actively involved.
