ISO 9001 is one of the most popular international standards. It sets requirements for a Quality Management System (QMS). It is also one of the most sought-after ISO standards as it is very generic. In fact, over a million companies and organizations from over 170 countries have already adopted ISO 9001.
A Quality Management System is a set of processes that focus on ensuring that all the products and services of an organization are of the best quality. The purpose of a quality management system is to ensure that when a process is implemented repeatedly, the same data, approaches, skills, and controls are applied persistently. If there is an issue or risk detected in the process, it is fed into the quality management system to ensure uninterrupted improvement.
Quality management principles are primary values and rules that form the foundation for effective quality management.
The seven principles of Quality Management are:
Customer satisfaction is of utmost importance for an effective Quality Management System.
Managers at every level are unified to create ideal working conditions that will encourage all the employees to achieve the quality objectives of the organization.
All the people in the organization are encouraged to actively participate in the process of creating and delivering products and services of value.
All the processes involved in the QMS are interrelated to form a coherent system that will help achieve reliable and expected results.
Continual improvement is encouraged throughout the business process.
Desired results are achieved accurately by basing all the decisions on facts obtained by analyzing and examining the existing information.
Management of relationships with all business partners, associates, and suppliers results in a successful business.
These principles are flexible. Although all the principles are vital for an effective QMS, an organization has the freedom to prioritize the principles and change the order based on their requirements.
Although the International Organization of Standardization (ISO) sets and publishes the ISO standards, it does not provide any certification services. ISO Certification is a seal of approval from a third-party organization that the certified company is in complete compliance with the chosen ISO standard.
