ISO 9001 is the internationally recognised standard for managing quality in an organisation. It covers all processes within an organisation that control the way they do business and produce and deliver their products and services. It prescribes and ensures systematic control of all an organisation’s activities that are directed towards delivery of their product or service, ensuring their customer expectations and requirements are met. Also, importantly it mandates an organisation having formal processes for continuously monitoring and improving these processes. ISO 9001 is part of the ISO 9000 series and is the audit-able standard in the ISO 9000 family.
Why a UKAS Accredited Certification Body is Important?
To demonstrate that a quality management system really does meet the ISO 9001 standard it is essential to engage an independent and impartial third party to assess the system against the standard. These third parties are known as conformity assessment bodies (CABs).
It stands to reason that it is absolutely critical to use a CAB who you know to be competent and whose assessment will be universally accepted. National Accreditation Bodies (NABs) assess the CABs against international standards to make sure that they are competent to assess against specific standards. UKAS is the UK’s NAB. NABs are reviewed to make sure that they are competent by taking evaluations by their peers and by being subject to government audit and appointment.
