The ISO 9001 standard is the quality management standard. It provides guarantees in terms of organisational quality within any type of structure. ISO 9001 certification consists in proving that a continuous improvement system has been set up within the company.
The ISO 9001 standard is based on the principles of quality management:
- Customer orientation: knowing how to adapt to the needs of your customers
- Leadership: Management assumes responsibility for system performance
- Collaboration: involve the company's employees in the objectives
- Process approach: managing resources and activities as processes
- Evidence-based decision-making
- Management of stakeholder relations
The philosophy of this standard is therefore to take into account:
- The context of the organization, its products/services
- Its risks and opportunities,
- The performance of its system,
- Monitoring and improving customer and stakeholder satisfaction
Through this certification, the company anticipates and reduces potential internal dysfunctions. It measures the effectiveness of these services in order to determine the performance of its organization. This allows it to implement a logic of continuous improvement.
