ISO 9001 is an international standard that has been accepted worldwide as a standard for establishing and maintaining a quality management system. This is a more general standard as it applies to any organization regardless of the size and industry. It has acted as a framework for many other industry-specific standards such as AS9100, ISO 13485, and IATF 16949. In fact, ISO 9001 compliance is required before an organization can be certified for those other dependent standards.
Implementing ISO 9001
Before you can apply for ISO 9001 certification, you need to implement it in your business. That is the reason why a pre-assessment audit is done before the certification audit. It is to determine whether your organization has implemented an ISO 9001 quality management system and is ready for certification or not.
