ISO 9001 and ISO 14001 certification explained
ISO 9001 is a quality management standard that requires a company to demonstrate its ability to consistently deliver high-quality products and services. The standard covers the entire business process and provides a framework for continuous improvement, which helps to enhance customer satisfaction and increase profitability.
ISO 14001 helps a business to minimise its impact on the environment through an effective environmental management system. This standard provides a framework for reducing waste and emissions, conserving resources, and complying with environmental regulations.
Having these certificates shows that a business is committed to meeting high standards in both quality management and environmental performance, and demonstrates its credibility to customers, suppliers, and other stakeholders.
The process of attaining certification for ISO 9001 and ISO 14001
To obtain certification for ISO 9001 and ISO 14001, a company must demonstrate compliance with the respective standards through a certification audit.
The following is an outline of the certification process:
Management Commitment: The organisation's top management must demonstrate a commitment to implementing and maintaining the quality management system (ISO 9001) and environmental management system (ISO 14001).
Gap Analysis: The company must perform a gap analysis to identify areas for improvement and to ensure that the current system aligns with the requirements of the standard.
Documentation: The company must develop and implement a set of documented procedures that outline the process for managing the environmental impact (ISO 14001) or quality of its products and services (ISO 9001).
Implementation: The company must implement the procedures and work towards meeting the requirements of the standard. This includes regular monitoring and assessment of the system to identify areas for improvement.
Certification Audit: The company must undergo a certification audit by the third-party auditor to assess the effectiveness of the quality management system (ISO 9001) and environmental management system (ISO 14001).
Certification: Upon successful completion of the audit, the company will receive the ISO 9001 and ISO 14001 certifications, which must be re-certified regularly to maintain the certification.
