ISO 9001:2015 (Quality Management System) – Everything You Need To Know!
Simply putting forward ISO 9001:2015 is a framework, which comprises of a number of standards or practices that any company or a person needs to follow in order to ensure a quality product or service offering for the end customer. These standards do not dictate people or organizations what they should do or shouldn’t do rather act as a guideline to qualify the market accepted quality standards. And if someone is following those guidelines, they are entitled to get the ISO 9001:2015 certification.
Who should get ISO 9001:2015 Certification?
There are no limitations or restrictions for any specific domain of business. It doesn’t even matter if the organization is of thousands of people or just a sole proprietorship. Anyone who is willing to streamline their business processes and practices to ensure the end product or services offered by the company/individual are always up to the industry standards are welcomed to get ISO 9001:2015 QMS certification.
How does ISO 9001:2015 Certification work?
ISO itself doesn’t award the certification. There are third-party audit organizations who are required to check whether or not a company’s business practices comply with the ISO 9001:2015 framework if the company or person clears the audit the certification is awarded and if not then the company can may face non-conformities and may get a due date to fix the issues in order to get the certification.
Does ISO 9001:2015 Certification have versions?
Yes, ISO 9001:2015 was published in September 2015 and hence being the most updated version of the framework. The first version was published in 1987 whereas the version published in 2015 replaced the version of 2008. Till date there are no further changes to the framework standards and hence only ISO 9001:2015 QMS have legal and valid status of the certification.
If you are wondering why there is a need for versioning, then the answer is that industry practices and standards change depending upon several factors such environment, customer expectation, other governing bodies so ISO also keeps on checking if the measuring standards need improvisation or changes. Hence, versions are in place and only the current version ISO 9001:2015 is valid out of all versions published to date.
