ISO 9001 certification of quality management systems

ISO 9001. It helps you grow

In addition to being an ideal platform from which to progress towards other management system certifications related to the environment, safety and social responsibility, ISO 9001 makes it possible for small and medium-sized companies to place themselves on par with large corporations, ranking equally in effectiveness and competing on the same footing in the aggressive current market.

Thanks to the implementation of a Quality Management System in accordance with the standard UNE-EN ISO 9001, the organisation demonstrates its ability to consistently provide products or services that meet the requirements of the client and the applicable regulations.

Amongst other advantages, it can attend to clients that, more and more, require certified suppliers, increase the possibility of boosting its sales in the European Union, improve its own quality systems, as well as the documentation and suppliers with regard to performance, in addition to generating greater trust between suppliers and clients.

This international standard promotes the adoption of a process-based approach when a quality management system is developed, implemented and its effectiveness is improved, which is in turn based on the continuous improvement cycle PDCA (Plan, Do, Check, Act).
