What is A Quality Management System?

Considering that certification is an assurance that your management system complies with the requirements of the latest version of the ISO 9001 standard, a quality management system is ultimately the core of ISO 9001 certification. Through a third party audit conducted by QMS, our lead auditor checks and verifies compliance that leads to registration and certification.

Let’s get more specific. What is a quality management system anyway? Without a doubt, every organization follows procedures proposed by their management to deliver their products or services to their customers. Sometimes, however, without the proper knowledge or guidance, it’s harder to point things in the right direction.

The primary focus of an ISO compliant quality management system is to facilitate this process by bringing forward principles and establishing a set of requirements that not only help you meet customer needs but also strive to exceed customer expectations.

Above all, a quality management system is a well defined set of business processes in written form. Your company’s documentation should include, among other things, processes maps and responsibilities that show your commitment to quality in accordance with the pre-defined ISO standard.

Furthermore, your quality management system should be built into your business and cover all operational activities within your scope of work. A lot of companies choose to build it themselves, if they count with the competence and knowledge of the requirements of the ISO standard. Please not that in order to remain impartial and objective in the certification process, registrars cannot help organizations in the implementation process. A very practical solution is working with an ISO consultant.

Whether you need help with the complete implementation, make amendments, or even just the templates to write the documentation yourself, consultants are a great resource to setting up an effective quality management system. Choosing the right company for this job is crucial. To help you in the selection process, we have come up with a unique way to receive quotes from multiple consultants according to your specific needs all in one place. All you need to do is go to www.howtogetiso.com, fill out a form and wait to receive quotes straight to your email.

At QMS, we have established a network of professionals that are willing and ready to help you in the certification process. Do not hesitate to contact us at anytime at contact@qms-certification.com.
