What is ISO 9001:2008?

ISO 9001:2008 is an internationally recognised standard for Quality Management .

This international standard provides a framework of specific requirements for a quality management system which can be applied to any organisation, regardless of type, size and product/service provided. The Quality Management Certification is fundamentally concerned with how a company meets customer requirements, enhances customer satisfaction and pursues continuous performance improvement. The requirements of the standard are set out in a number of clauses and are further broken down into sub clauses. A company who is aspiring to become ISO 9001:2008 certified must fulfil all of the requirements set out in each of the clauses. There are five clauses in the standard that specify activities that need to be considered when implementing your system. They are as follows:


√          Overall requirements for the quality management system and documentation


√          Management responsibility, focus, policy, planning and objectives


√          Resource management and allocation


√          Product realization and process management,


√          Measurement, monitoring, analysis and improvement.


By fulfilling all of the requirements set out in the ISO 9001:2008 standard, the end result for your company will be twofold: Your Company will obtain the internationally recognised certification [certification will be provided by an independent certification body], and secondly your company will have processes in place to achieve customer satisfaction through consistent products and services which meet customer expectations.  

I n today’s environment, more and more companies are realising the advantages, if the not the necessity of implementing the ISO 9001:2008 standard into their business.
