International Standards Organization (ISO) is an international body providing guidelines for companies in terms of product quality, health, and performance. An ISO registration enhances the reputation and credibility of your service or product. There are different types of ISO certifications like ISO 9001, ISO 14001, ISO 5001, etc.
ISO 9000 is a viewed in terms of quality and prestige. To meet the regulatory requirement and customer satisfaction, companies go for ISO 9001:2015, ISO 19011:2018, ISO 9000:2015.
QMS is structured framework of policies, processes and procedures for planning and execution in the core business areas of an organization. ISO 9001:2015 is the international standard for QMS.

ISO set an environmental management system that can be an integral part of any business. The main focus of this standard is to reduce the costs, reuse the resources or recycle (if it’s not possible). This would make the business more efficient and make it eco-friendly.Though it is not possible to be 100% eco-friendly, yet it encourages the business to either reduce the raw materials used or maintain the current levels of usage. In layman’s term, it sets standards to be met while not disturbing the day-to-day business operations.
ISO certification is like a statement to your company’s stakeholders, creditors, employees, and others that your established business operates in a specific framework. And your company uses this framework to achieve all your objectives, be it customer satisfaction, production objectives or environmental objectives. It being an external certification, it keeps the credibility of the certification as well.There are many requests from many public sector tenders, where the ISO certification is a pre-requisite before allotment. In that case, it’d improve your chances of getting that tender.
Due to the variety of standards that a business can opt for, it often gets confusing which to give priority. For this we’d recommend the following as the major standards applicable in the market as now:
Audit is mandatory if you wish to get yourself ISO certified. This audit would mean that the system implemented is fit for its purpose and continually improving. For effective management of your systems, you need to comply with these standards.The auditor’s role is to inform you about the requirements in your process/operation/management that need improvement. Your company can see this as an opportunity and so improve on these procedures using a step-by-step guide.
Non-conformance is a situation when something doesn’t go according to plan and so it could result in complaints or delays in the process. The company can see it as opportunities and after tracking these situations, specific action can be taken action.
As a company, we have backups, virus protection, and protection firewalls- do we still need an ISO 27001 information security management system?
Before jumping to any conclusion, first you need to understand that many of the technical breaches happen not because of lack of enough firewalls, but because of the lack of understanding among the employees about the firewalls. Any error could leak the information to the competitors and so by providing proper information to these employees, most of the breaches could be avoided.Now, if you decide to consider this ISO, just remember that proper training and information will be provided so to reduce the chance of future breaches.
Of course, the new amendments made to the ISO standards include every organization. That is, there is no exclusion for the start-up of any kind. Be it large scale or small scale, this certification would help your business improve and increase customer satisfaction
No, you don’t need to renew this certificate. Though, the auditor is authorized to conduct surprise checks from time to time to make sure all the standards are met.
ISO certification is used to set certain standards only and is not equivalent to permit/license. For ease in conducting business, you still need the government’s authority permission, permit or license.
The new ISO standards are:
It is not mandatory to maintain a quality manual. The ISO issuing agency specifies that the organization should maintain the documented information necessary for the effectiveness of the Quality Management System (QMS).
This could be accomplished by using multiple ways, quality manual being one of them. If a company chooses this method, then it is perfectly acceptable.

The workings of ISO certification and accreditation are the same. The only difference is in the body who certifies it and how it is done.For the ISO certification, you need to just pay a minimal fee and email us the required documents. The whole process takes 10-15 days.But in the case of accreditation, only accredited body such as UKAS (UK) and INAB (Ireland) provides it. Moreover, there is no help from these bodies, they just conduct an assessment and based on it, they either pass or fail the company.
As a minimum, you should familiarize yourself not only with the requirements of IS/ISO 9001 but also the vocabularies that are given in IS/ISO 9000 and direction standard IS/ISO 9004.
