What is ISO Certification?

The International Organization for Standardization (ISO) is a nonprofit, non-governmental organization consisting of more than 164 governing bodies. The ISO brings together its members and experts from all around the world to share industry knowledge and establish International Standards.

An International Standard is a detailed document that identifies best practices and procedures to implement to solve market-specific challenges.

Following the recognized standards certifies that a system is in place that meets standardization and quality assurance requirements.

An ISO certification ensures an organization is structured and strategic. When an organization adheres to ISO standards, it proves it is credible and committed to improving the quality of its products and services.

ISO standards:

  • Ensure products are compatible
  • Verify products and services are safe to use or consume
  • Share practical information, solutions, and best practices

We may not realize it, but ISO standards play a role in our everyday lives. For example, the food we buy is safe to eat because of food preparation and safety requirements outlined in international standards. Additionally, credit cards can be used virtually anywhere because ISO experts put a best practice in place to standardize payment methods, as every country has its own currency. ISO experts recognized this need and established an international standard for credit cards and card terminals, allowing them to be used globally and recognized as an accepted payment method around the world.

ISO 9001:2015: Quality Management

ISO 9001 is a standard that has a strong customer focus and sets requirements for a quality management system. Establishing an ISO 9001 quality management system can increase an organization’s profitability and overall performance.

ISO 45001 should be integrated into an organization’s existing management processes, as it follows the same high-level structure as other ISO management system standards and was developed with consideration to the International Labor Organization’s related standard for occupational health and safety management—OHSAS 18001.

The Benefits of Working with an ISO-Certified Company

When an organization follows ISO standards, it proves it is committed to achieving its goals while delivering the best customer experience possible. Depending on the industry, following ISO standards may be required instead of just recommended.

Organizations must annually pay, recertify, and undergo audits for ISO certifications to ensure compliance with the standard(s). In some cases, companies undergo training and/or restructure their business to comply with ISO standards.
