About ISO 9001

The ISO 9001 Quality Management standard is implemented by over one million companies and organizations in over 170 countries. The standard provides a common self-improvement template for businesses and is continually evolving.

Quality Management Principles

The standard is based on a process approach to business management. Using this approach, business processes are managed through monitoring of key performance indicators. Emphasis is given to customer focus. The quality of the business is measured according to how well it performs against the self-established indicators. A cycle of continual improvement is established to assure positive change. The cycle is monitored using internal and external surveillance audits and a minimum of one top management review per year.
