Why should my organisation implement ISO 9001?

Many companies see the introduction of a quality management system as a major step forward in controlling and improving their key processes. Others simply react to customer demands that their suppliers should have suitable systems.

Why should my organisation apply for ISO 9001 certification?

Satisfactory assessment of your management system leads to the award of a certificate of registration. The value of a certificate of registration and its credibility depends on the organisation that issues it and the status that the organisation has gained in the market place.
