ISO (International Organization for Standardization) certification validates that a management system, manufacturing process, service, or documentation procedure has all the requirements for standardization and quality assurance. It is an independent, non-governmental, international organization that develops standards to ensure the quality, safety, and efficiency of products, services, and systems.
All standards within the ISO 9000 family refer to quality management. ISO 9001:2015 is among ISO’s best-known standards, and it defines the criteria for meeting several quality management principles. It helps our business to be more efficient in daily activities and improve customer satisfaction.
ISO 14001:2015 certification is an environmental management standard that our organization has chosen to certify to. By integrating ISO 14001:2015 with the management system standard ISO 9001:2015, we will be able to further assist our suppliers and customers in orchestrating the supply chain whilst being environmentally supportive.
