What is ISO 9001?
ISO 9001 is an international standard that contains the requirements for an organisation’s Quality Management System (QMS)
The standard follows the standard management system structure defined in Annex SL. The structure includes:
- Context of the organisation
- Performance evaluation
Why should my organisation implement ISO 9001?
Many companies see the introduction of a QMS as a major step forward in controlling and improving their key processes. Others simply react to customer and contractual requirements. A well implemented quality management system should ensure customers requirements are met and process performance improves over time.
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.

What will it cost?
World Certification Services has always offered affordable certification. We try to be competitive in the market place with sensible day rates and low application fees. The cost of certification varies depending on the size and scope of the QMS. In general the more employees and processes the longer the audit duration and hence a higher cost. WCS does not base its fees on your company turnover. We review the complexity of the organisation and adjust the audit duration / costs accordingly.
