Bearing in mind that ISO 9000 standards are now embraced and recommended by companies from over 120 countries worldwide, ISO has become the standard to think about if you want to be competitive worldwide. If you've decided that conforming to ISO standards would give your business an advantage, you will next want to know about how you can achieve ISO certification. You will first need to develop a quality management system that conforms to ISO standards. You will also need to decide whether you need ISO 9000 certification, or one of the sub-categories.

If you already have a quality management system, then you won't need to start from scratch. You can perform an analysis to ascertain whether your standards already match those of ISO or whether you need to do some upgrading. There are programs on the market that will help you to analyze your system and quickly pinpoint shortcomings.

Conforming to ISO Standards

It is also possible to employ professional help to assist you with your implementation of better quality management that will be compatible with your ISO certification. This will be especially desirable if you are beginning from scratch. ISO itself can help by providing the necessary standards to which you should be aspiring.

Then, when you are ready, your system will undergo an official audit. Upon completion of a successful audit you will be issued an official ISO certificate that will immediately announce your high standards to the world. Providing you are audited by an accredited auditor, you don't need to be registered by ISO to receive certification.
