The ISO 9001 certification process has four clear stages:
Stage One: Planning
Thanks to the fact that ISO 9001 is very flexible, planning how you are going to implement your new quality management system is relatively straightforward whatever sort or size of organisation you are.
Stage Two: Implementation
Key business processes must be identified and given measurable performance objectives. You are also required to develop and implement several key documents:
Control of Documents Procedure
Control of Records Procedure
Control of Nonconformances Procedure
Internal Audit Procedure
Corrective Action Procedure
Preventive Action Procedure
Stage Three: Review
Once implemented, the quality management has to be maintained for at least 60 days, after which it will be reviewed.
Stage Four: Certification
Once your quality management system has been audited by an approved Registrar, you will then gain your ISO 9001:2015 accreditation. This is not a one off award, and you will need to update your certification every three years.
