The concept of standardization is highly sought after throughout the business world. The tangible and intangible benefits it offers both producers & consumers is too great to ignore; and it is these benefits that inspired 25 engineers from around the world create the International Organization for Standardization, or ISO, in London, England. Since its inception in 1947, ISO has published over 19,500 International Standards spanning various industries, and improving the world in the process.
What is ISO 9001:2008?
National ITC (NITC) has proudly earned an ISO 9001:2008 Certification. Used in over 170 countries worldwide as a means of implementing uniformity among various business practices, this standard establishes the requirements of a Quality Management System (QMS). This certification is defined as the “way your organization directs and controls those activities which are related either directly or indirectly to meeting customer requirements.” As a result, ISO 9001:2008 is achieved through a number of objectives, most notably:
- – The establishment of a framework for continual improvement and customer satisfaction.
- – The ability to provide technical support for regulators.
- – The transferring of good managerial practices.
Through careful organization and structuring, ISO 9001:2008 seeks to build and sustain customer confidence through the use of well-managed processes, resources, and documentation. The ISO QMS model also results in the continual improvement of products and services a business offers its customers. Put another way, ISO compels businesses, such as ours, to not only establish, but continually maintain high standards for itself… Your business benefits as a result.
