The International Organization for Standardization (ISO) develops and publishes standards, such as the ISO 9001 Quality Management System standard. Currently ISO has developed over 22,000 standards in different industries and product sectors.
The ISO 9001 standard outlines requirements for organizations to establish, implement, maintain, and improve a Quality Management System. With over a million organizations certified to ISO 9001 worldwide, the ISO 9001 standard is the largest of all ISO standards in terms of number of certificates issued, and has become the international indicator for quality and consistency.
Using a process-based approach, the ISO 9001 standard lays out tools for companies to assess, and improve their day-to-day processes that make them run. Conforming to the ISO 9001 standard can help organizations ensure that everything that reaches its customers meets their requirements and has the levels of quality desired.
