ISOQAR > ISO 9001

What is ISO 9001?

ISO 9001 is the internationally recognised standard for quality management systems across all industries and is used in over one million organisations globally. It provides a management framework to improve business practices, helping you to provide services and products that meet your customers’ expectations.

The standard is based on seven quality management principles and prescribes systematic control of the processes that your business uses. The ISO 9001 certification can help you improve your organisation’s efficiency and performance through improved customer satisfaction, staff motivation and continual improvement.

Why choose Alcumus ISOQAR for your certification?

If you’re new to ISO certification, our business development team is on hand to take your calls and explain the steps to certification. You can also read our Route to Registration page, which clearly outlines the registration process in six simple steps.

Ahead of applying for ISO certification, many organisations choose to carry out internal audits with the help of an external consultant. You can search for a consultant based in your region through our IAN Database.

Taking the next steps

If you are currently with another ISO certification provider, you can transfer to Alcumus ISOQAR with no break in your certification. We make transferring your ISO certification convenient, and there is no fee to transfer!

We will take care of the administration and make sure that there is no disruption to your organisation. Your audit schedule can remain the same, or it can be changed if you would prefer.

The first step is to introduce ISO 9001 into your organisation. You can do this by updating or renewing your processes according to the guidelines set out in the ISO 9001 standard, then communicating the changes internally.

If you need extra support during this stage, you can hire an ISO 9001 consultant through our IAN database, who will be able to advise you and provide you with a gap analysis pre-assessment to make sure you're ready for certification.

Once you and your consultant are satisfied that your quality management processes align with the principles set out in ISO 9001, it's time to book your certification.

We will complete a full audit of your business processes. If they meet the requirements of ISO 9001, we will then issue you with ISO 9001 certification.
