Do you want to enable your business to market its QMS as ISO 9001:2015 Certified and enable new partnerships that require the certification? All this new business must require a big catch, right? Not necessarily.
One of the most common misconceptions when it comes to ISO certifications and internal audits, in general, is that it’s a daunting and onerous process. There is this idea that it entails immense amounts of documentation, and they get in the way of organizations realizing the benefits of such a project.
Here at American Global Standards, we’ve been helping companies certify their Quality Management Systems (QMs) for years now and we’ve demonstrated that this is a complete myth. The ISO 9001:2015 process does not need to be unnecessarily complex. The core idea is that we are comparing the status quo inside your organization to the documented processes that you’ve created – to identify whether you’re running as efficiently as you should be.
It doesn’t need to be a heavy lift to implement these standards. It’s not about the number of procedures that you can create or the sophistication of the documentation. It’s all about observing what’s really happening and comparing it to what management thinks is going on. With time your process documentation should naturally scale with your operations as your business gets more complex. But it doesn’t need to feel overwhelming. And with the right partner, you’ll find that these certifications actually add a lot of value that you might be under-appreciating:
- They provide internal feedback loops to ensure that your processes are being followed effectively.
- They shine the light on opportunities for continual improvement to keep pushing your business forward.
- They encourage staff members to upskill and familiarise themselves with the tenets of the processes and procedures.
All of these benefits can be incredibly valuable for your organization, and it doesn’t require pulling teeth, as so many tend to believe. American Global Standards is well set up to help you through this process so that you can be certified for your particular vertical, giving you the regulatory approvals that you need as well as the peace of mind to know that your business is operating as intended.
