ISO 9001:2015 focuses on a continual improvement, process-based approach that supports the effective management of your business. This enables you to meet customers' requirements through an efficient, effective quality management system (QMS). It is suitable for any organisation that wishes to improve customer satisfaction, staff motivation and build a culture of continual improvement. ISO 9001:2015 is based on the plan-do-check-act methodology and provides a process-based approach to documenting and reviewing the structure, responsibilities and procedures in the organisation, which are required to achieve effective quality management. When you gain ISO 9001, you will join over a million organizations globally who have improved their businesses with this management system standard. An ISO 9001 accreditation is not only recognised internationally as the world’s most widely adopted quality management system (QMS), it is also a powerful business improvement tool.
An ISO 9001 quality management system will help you to continually monitor and manage quality across your business so you can identify areas for improvement and keep everything running smoothly. Internationally, this is the quality system of choice.
Standards BS EN ISO 14001.
BS EN ISO 14001 : 2015 Environmental Management Systems
ISO 14001 is an international standard that establishes the requirements for an environmental management system (EMS). Elements of the standard include planning, implementation, environmental policy, checking and management review and the PDCA process. The objective is for an organisation to establish an EMS that is integrated with the overall business management process. Continual improvement is integral to the model. This can be seen in many ways, such as improved communications and employee awareness, improved environmental performance, and improved emergency planning and response programs.
What is the Matrix Standard?
The matrix Standard is a quality standard for organisations seeking to assess and measure their information, advice and guidance services (IAG) in a learning or work setting. It ultimately supports individuals regarding career, learning, work and life goals by helping associated services to provide the best support.
The matrix Standard provides a benchmark of the quality of IAG services - the Government's Information Advice and Guidance (IAG) strategy to help students with career paths and life goals.
The matrix quality standard acts as a performance improvement tool that promotes effective practice and continuous quality improvement. It quality assures organisations delivering Government-funded contracts, including the National Careers Service.
From the evaluation findings, its purpose is well understood by accredited organisations, assessors and advisors. The matrix is a path, so to speak. If you follow the path then the service improves. If the service improves, the customer gets better advice and guidance, which then that has a direct impact on the college: students are getting on the right course, based upon their goals and ambitions. The matrix quality standard helps students and colleges alike.
British Retail Consortium Global Standards.
BRCGS Standards guarantee the standardisation of quality, safety and operational criteria to ensure that manufacturers fulfil their legal obligations and provide protection for the end consumer. Certification to BRCGS Standards is now often a fundamental requirement of leading retailers, manufacturers, and food service organisations. (Food Safety)
AS9100 is an international management system standard for the aircraft space and defence industry (AS&D). This standard gives suppliers a comprehensive quality management system for providing safe and reliable products to the aerospace industry. AS9100 also addresses civil and military aviation requirements.
AS9100 Rev DAS9100 was first released in 1999, but since then has undergone many alterations. The latest revision’s most significant update was largely to make it fully compliant with the ISO 9001:2015. This latest version coincides with the ISO 9001:2015 transition, to make moving into the revised AS9100 as easy as possible.
The AS9100 D includes the following adjustments:
Standards ISO 22000.
ISO 22000:2005 is an international standard that sets out the requirements for a food safety management system (FSMS). It enables any organisation in the food industry to demonstrate its ability to control food safety hazards and to ensure that food is safe. This can be used by any organisation, regardless of size or position in the food industry’s chain of operations. This standard is designed to allow all types of organisations to implement a food safety management system. These range from food processers, transport, storage operators, food manufacturers, subcontractors to retail and food service outlets.
The consequences of unsafe food can be serious. ISO’s food safety management standards help organisations identify and control food safety hazards. As many of today's food products repeatedly cross national boundaries, International Standards are needed to ensure the safety of the global food supply chain.
Standards ISO 45001.
During the mid seventies, health and safety laws were introduced to help manage and bring down accidents, illness and more importantly deaths within the workplace. Companies around the U.K adopted OHSAS 18001 which helped them maintain and manage their health and safety management systems in a structed manner. The introduction of ISO 45001 will provide a more enhanced and robust framework for their health and safety management system that can also be simply integrated with already existing ISO standards.
If you currently hold certifications in ISO 9001 or 14001 and you are looking to migrate your current OHSAS 18001 system to ISO 45001, the great news is that you’re nearly there! How is this? Due to the high-level structure, Annex SL. This is an element of which 9001 & 14001 are built on, such as the new clause, “4” – Context of the organisation.
Standards ISO 27001.
The ISO 27001 requires the effective implementation of an ISMS - an information security management system. It creates a framework to help you better protect information from breaches, addressing areas of risk and putting measures in place to minimise them. Achieving ISO 27001 certification brings the benefits of a smooth-running security system, while reassuring your clients that their information is protected.
