Title: Top 10 Critical Reasons - Why to Get ISO 9001 Certification

Top 10 Critical Reasons - Why To Get ISO 9001
ISO 9001 may be the world's most popular ISO
standard, with over one million certificates
issued around the world, but there are still many
who aren't sure of its benefits. Our Top 10 list
gives an overview of the main reasons for
implementing standards, with the resulting
It increases Chances of Winning Public Sector
For many years now, both central and local
government have stipulated quality management
systems in their tenders. ISO 9001 is an
internationally recognized standard, with
certification ensuring organizations meet a high
level of quality. By asking for ISO 9001 from
contractors, the public sector can prove it is
spending tax payers money wisely, whilst not
having to waste time checking an organization's
credentials. With ISO 9001 certification from an
accredited body, the certificate does the
talking! With ISO 9001 being revered within
government then, it is no surprise that almost
all tender winners are certified. Many of our
clients have told us that, without ISO 9001, they
simply wouldn't have won the work.
It increases Chances of Winning Private Sector
Its not only the public sector that deems ISO
9001 important. As major organizations realized
the benefits of ISO 9001, they started to demand
it of their suppliers too. By making ISO 9001 a
requirement throughout the supply chain, it
ensures quality is at a consistent high level,
reducing risk.
It Helps Your Organization Meet Legal and
Regulatory Requirements
Depending on your industry, there can be many
legal and regulatory requirements that you must
conform to, and you can be forgiven for not being
aware of them all. Going through ISO 9001
implementation ensures you meet all current
legislation, saving any potential embarrassment.
It can Lower Insurance Premiums
Ensuring you meet legislation of course lowers
your risk. Many companies find that their
insurance premiums are therefore reduced when
they have ISO 9001, partly thanks to the
additional aspect of having third party
It Improves Customer Satisfaction
An integral aspect of ISO 9001 is customer
satisfaction. It focuses on the customer instead
of purely business goals by gaining feedback
being and then analyzing it. The standard will
help improve quality of service, adopting a
'right first time' attitude. The message ISO
9001 certification sends out to customers is an
important one too. An independent verification of
your quality management system demonstrates your
commitment to quality, customer service and
continuous improvement.
Improved Operational Efficiency
Over the years, organizations can build up a
variety of processes and ways of doing things.
ISO 9001 encourages well defined and documented
procedures in order to improve the consistency of
your organization's output, replacing any current
practices that are obsolete or inefficient. By
having procedures in place for when problems
occur, correct action is then taken. Over time,
this efficiency of process leads to fewer
mistakes, and those that do occur, are caught
It Reduces Re-work
Greater efficiency means fewer errors, which
means less re-work, product scrap and rejections.
You may find you already had processes in place
for many business functions, but ISO 9001 helps
improve or eradicate obsolete processes that are
counter-productive. The standard introduces
better process control and  flow, improves
documentation of processes, and creates awareness
of quality amongst employees.
It Increases Profit Margins
ISO 9001 isn't just financially beneficial
through winning contracts. With improved
management processes, the greater efficiency
gained from implementing ISO 9001 can lead to an
improvement to the bottom line. With improved
processes leading to less overall work, this
ultimately results in a cost saving when
delivering the product/service. Cost savings can
also be had due to less mistakes being made.
Errors that do happen can be caught earlier,
taking less time and money to fix.
It can Increase Employee Motivation and
It is fair to say, that with proper processes in
place, staff will feel more at ease with their
job roles, leading to greater job satisfaction
and motivation, especially when they are made
aware of how quality and overall success depends
on them. Of course, achieving certification to
an internationally recognized quality management
standard is something to be proud of, so becoming
certified should be celebrated! Including your
staff throughout the process is key to getting
both buy-in and motivation.
It Promotes Continual Improvement
A fundamental part of all ISO management
standards is continual improvement, challenging
you to strive to make improvements year on year.
By doing so, the benefits mentioned above are
further felt.
