SMEs in the manufacturing, services and construction supply chains are increasingly being expected to be accredited to the ISO 9001 quality system or are considering its implementation for other commercial reasons.
The advantages of ISO Accreditation:
Competitive edge – even in situations or industries where ISO 9001 Accreditation is not a contractual requirement or expectation it can set you apart from the competition
Best practice – ISO 9001 can improve process and service quality, increase customer satisfaction levels and improve productivity
Easy integration – the implementation of ISO 9001 makes it simpler to develop a single management system to meet the requirements of other standards including those for Environmental and Health & Safety, saving on duplication and cutting down those costs
