ISO 9001:2015 sets out the criteria for a Quality Management System and is the only standard that can be certified.
This standard is based on a number of Quality Management principles including a strong customer focus, the motivation and implication of top management, the process approach and continual improvement. Using ISO 9001:2015 helps ensure that customers get consistent, good quality products and services, which in turn brings many business benefits.
A QMS integrates the various internal processes within the organization and intends to provide a process approach for project execution. A process based QMS enables the organisations to identify, measure, control and improve the various core business processes that will ultimately lead to improved business performance.
A complete ISO 9001 Quality Management System must address all the requirements of ISO 9001, including the ISO 9001 documentation requirements.
