Here is a list of the categories and individual areas covered by ISO or QMS systems. By studying the list, you can see that every element involved in Quality Management Systems are accounted for, within the list. The list of items may not completely apply to all companies and unlike earlier ISO systems, there now exists some flexibility. Allowing any company to both, apply and succeed, in qualifying for certification of ISO 9001 2000 and apply the process to their individual company’s needs.
The value in qualifying -and complying with the practise of using this system, will promote the company’s development and confirm to all Clients, that you are capable of interacting to qualified standards of approach. This approach can not be overstated and whilst there may be some, who have ISO certification and are not making best use of its value and importance. There are many companies, who value its importance as a quality management system and prosper by their adherence. Whilst looking over the list, it may at first, seem off putting when considering the development of your company. With thoughts which you can be forgiven for thinking, ‘would my company require the majority of these elements before my business will become successful’. The answer is yes.
