Certifying to ISO 9001 Quality Management
When you achieve ISO 9001 certification you will be able to show customers and stakeholders your commitment to quality products and services. It’s a great opportunity to celebrate your achievement, promote your business, and show that you are a trusted supplier which could open up new business opportunities.
How to get certified to ISO 9001 Quality Management
Certification to ISO 9001 should be hassle-free. To help you through certification you’ll be appointed a BSI Client Manager, a trusted expert with relevant industry experience to your business, who can guide you through the process.
The steps to ISO 9001 Certification
- ISO 9001 Gap analysis -
An optional service which takes place before your assessment visits. We will take a closer look at your existing quality management system and compare it with the requirements of the ISO 9001 standard. It’s a really cost effective way to check if there are any areas you need to work on before we carry out a formal assessment.
- Formal assessment -
A two-stage process. First your BSI Client Manager will review your organization’s readiness for assessment by checking if the necessary ISO 9001 procedures and controls have been developed in your organization. We will share the details of our findings with you via our BSI Connect Portal so that if we find gaps, you can close them.
Next, if all the requirements are in place, we’ll assess the implementation of the procedures and controls within your organization to make sure that they are working effectively as required for certification of ISO 9001.
- Certification and beyond -
When you achieved certification you’ll receive your BSI ISO 9001 certificate which is valid for three years. Your BSI Client Manager will visit you regularly to make sure your system doesn’t just remain compliant, but it continually improves and adds value to your organization.
You’ll be able to access all the information related to your certification via our BSI Connect Portal. Available 24/7, you can view essential information, such as your next 12 months of visit dates, audit reports, and certificates to support you with managing your BSI assessments and promoting your success.
