Choosing a certification body


When choosing a certification body, you should:

Evaluate several certification bodies.

Check if the certification body uses the relevant CASCO standard

Check if it is accredited. Accreditation is not compulsory, and non-accreditation does not necessarily mean it is not

reputable, but it does provide independent confirmation of competence. To find an accredited certification body.

Displaying your certificate

Remember, when labelling a product or system as certified to an ISO standard:

Don't say: "ISO certified" or "ISO certification"


DO say: "ISO 9001:2008 certified" or "ISO 9001:2008 certification" (for example).

Can I use the ISO logo?


The ISO logo is a registered trademark and cannot be used by anyone outside of ISO, unless
authorised.
If you wish to use a logo to demonstrate certification, contact the certification body that issued the
certificate.
ISO Certification is a seal of approval from a 3rd party body that a company runs to one of the
internationally recognised ISO management systems. The certification can be used to tender for
business as a proof of a companys credibility but also to install confidence in the potential client that
you will keep your promises.

ISO's brand and reputation: Quality, confidence, and trust

For standards users, customers and consumers, ISO means quality, confidence, trust, safety and many
other positive values. That is why we and our members care about how ISO's trademarks are used and
whether unauthorized use of the ISO trademarks could mislead, create false impressions, or cause
confusion.
We and our members (located in many countries worldwide) will take appropriate action if we consider
the misuse of ISO's trademarks puts our reputation at risk.

ISO Certification service


The ISO story began in 1946 when delegates from 25 countries met at the Institute of Civil Engineers
in London and decided to create a new international organization to facilitate the international
coordination and unification of industrial standards. In February 1947 the new organization, ISO,
officially began operations.
Since then,we have published over 19 500 International Standards covering almost all aspects of
technology and manufacturing.
Today we have members from 163 countries and 3 368 technical bodies to take care of standard
development. More than 150 people work full time for ISOs Central Secretariat in Geneva, Switzerland.
It's all in the name
Because 'International Organization for Standardization' would have different acronyms in different
languages (IOS in English, OIN in French for Organisation internationale de normalisation), our
founders decided to give it the short form ISO. ISO is derived from the Greek isos, meaning equal.
Whatever the country, whatever the language, we are always ISO

ISO 9001 certification


ISO 9001 is a quality management system that can be integrated into any business. It is focused on
ensuring the business delivers a consistent level of quality to its customers by having well defined and
regularly reviewed processes and procedures. The system fully integrates within the existing business

procedures and becomes part of the culture within the organisation. Eventually a business will not
perform a task to conform to the ISO 9001, it will perform the task for the good of the business. The
system covers eight main business principles which are:

Customer focus

Leadership

Involvement of people

Process approach

System approach to management

Continual improvement

Factual approach to decision making

Mutually beneficial supplier relationships

Iso certification cost


ISO Certification costs vary dependent on the size of an organisation and the level to which the
company is already run with regards to processes and procedures. If you decide to implement more
than one standard at the same time, there are some preferential fees available. We are a fixed fee
organisation, which means once we have met you to discuss your requirements and sent you a formal
quotation, this fee is then set. We will not charge you any extra then what is specified, so that you
know from the outset your costs and the payment method.
Due to our proposals being bespoke and the number of variables that can affect the cost of
implementation, we do like to meet our potential clients so as to get to know them a little better before
providing them with costings.

ISO consultants
The ISO 9001 standard is a strategic exercise. Its designed to effect a cultural change in an
organization so that everyone breathes and thinks quality in every business process. When a
consultant fails to understand this basic premise and instead concentrates on mere compliance to the
letter of the law, a marginally compliant system is born. The consultant has an obligation to
understand the standard, the basics of various business processes and the relationship between the
two.
A marginal system produces marginal results and loses credibility in the eyes of executives, whose
commitment, involvement and provision of resources ultimately support a successful QMS. Systems
that fail to impress executives are delegated to lower levels of management for maintenance, where
they become bureaucratic burdens rather than strategic business tools.

ISO 9001 Quality Management Systems

ISO 9001, the world's leading quality management standard, is under revision, with an updated version
due by the end of 2015.
Why is ISO 9001 being revised?
All ISO standards are reviewed every five years to establish if a revision is required to keep it current
and relevant for the marketplace. The future ISO 9001:2015 will respond to the latest trends and be
compatible with other management systems such as ISO 14001.
Where are we at in the revision process?
ISO 9001 is about to reach the Final Draft International Stage (FDIS ballot expected by July), the fifth
stage of a six stage process, whereby the ISO subcommittee revising the standard will now go through
all the comments received during the DIS vote in order to produce a final draft which will then be put
forward to all ISO members for voting.
What is the next step?
Once all comments have been considered a final draft will be produced and put forward to ISO
members for voting.
When will the new version be published?
ISO 9001:2015 is due to be published by the end of 2015.
What will be the main changes to the standard?
The new version will follow a new, higher level structure to make it easier to use in conjunction with
other management system standards, with increased importance given to risk. More information about
the changes can be found in the news area.

I am certified to ISO 9001:2008. What does this mean for me?


Organisations are granted a three-year transition period after the revision has been published to
migrate their quality management system to the new edition of the standard.
