ISO 9001 Benefits

ISO 9001 certification supports and provides benefits to both employees and customers. It is effective for not only large businesses but also for smaller businesses that work well when implementing quality management systems.

The organisation benefits include producing an efficient management procedure for senior management, whilst also distributing responsibility across the organisation. It also reduces costs, emphasises deficiencies and is a time efficient system.

The benefits for customers include on time delivery alongside a reduction of complaints or returned products. This is supported by providing a commitment to quality audits.

ISO 14001 Benefits

An ISO 14001 certification can be beneficial by allowing organisations to successfully meet environmental legal requirements. The system provides a positive image for employees, customers and stakeholders whilst also lowering the businesses costs by decreasing resource consumption and waste production.

In addition, it improves the management of environmental risks and provides a commitment to continuous environmental performance. The system provides assurance to both management and employees with regards to the organisations impact on the environment and their responsibility in doing so.

ISO 27001 Benefits

ISO 27001 is the most successful way of minimising a breach of client data. This certification reflects that the organisation is taking cyber security threats seriously. It also highlights an integrity and reliability when tendering for contacts.

ISO 27001 highlights that organisations have identified any risks, evaluated any implications and therefore put in place the appropriate system to minimise any business damage.

Furthermore, ISO 27001 ensures that information is accurate and can only be adapted by authorised persons. As a result, this will increase working relationships with clients as well improve the confidence between businesses and customers.

ISO 45001 changes?

As a result of IS0 18001 changing into ISO 45001 there are now ten clauses. The requirements of this certification are all tailored around these ten clauses as other management systems will do so in the future.

The ten clauses include consideration for scope, normative references, terms and definitions. Such changes also include a new requirement known as leadership, whereby management must show dedication and accountability for the success of OH&S.

There are also clauses for policy and planning where the organisation must state their assurance to continuous improvement and consider any risks or opportunities with the context of the organisation. Support, operations and performance evaluations are also a part of the ten clauses. However, there are little changes to these clauses as they have just become more specific.

Finally, improvement is the tenth clause that involves areas of incident, nonconformity, corrective action and continual improvement. The key change in this clause is that preventative action is no longer specified as this is covered under concept of risk-based thinking, which runs throughout this standard.
