What is ISO 9001: 2015?
ISO 9001: 2015 is an international quality management system standard developed using the ISO High Level Framework (HLS). It is common to all new ISO standards and ensures the best compatibility of the ISO 9001 standard with other standards, thus facilitating the implementation and integration of the management system, providing greater value to users.
ISO 9001: 2015 is an international standard that can be applied in large or small companies, public sector organizations and non-governmental organizations, as well as in any industry. It does not set specific quality requirements, so it can be used to design any quality management processes in a organization. This standard is considered to be a basic standard that well incorporates other standards, such as ISO 14001, ISO 45001, ISO 50001, ISO 27001 or ISO 22000, etc., if any of them is implemented in the organisation already.
ISO 9001 is based on seven quality management principles. They form a structured and at the same time flexible system, ensuring that management and employees will be satisfied with the organization’s processes, and customers will receive the appropriate product or service.
