What Is ISO 9001 Compliance ?


ISO 9001 is a set of quality management standards that regulates how a business or organization creates, processes, and stores its documents. The purpose of ISO 9001 is to provide companies proven guidelines for handling documents in ways that increase efficiency, productivity, and security. ISO 9001 has become increasingly popular with manufacturers and government entities over the past few years, and many companies are now specifically seeking out partners who are ISO 9001 compliant. What Is ISO 9001?


Why ISO 9001? ISO 9001 is a popular standard for document management because it has been proven to be both easy to use for employees and to improve customer service and internal efficiency. Its standards are applicable to organizations in every industry, and can be used by businesses of any size.  


ISO 9001 Standards ISO 9001 creates a process by which tasks can be completed for maximum efficiency. While each company can have its own unique process, in order to be ISO 9001 certified, a process has to have:   Adequate security measures to protect documents and data Effective auditing procedures to ensure quality management A simple to use document control process that can be easily monitored and prevents errors A document approval process that can identify and describe the activities of every user


How to Become ISO 9001 Compliant Becoming ISO 9001 compliant isn't as easy as just changing some internal processes and claiming your organization meets a set of standards. Some manufacturing entities are required to become officially ISO 9001-certified, which can be a time-consuming process that takes several months. Alternately, organizations can purchase document management software to help reach ISO 9001 compliance without the need for full certification.
