ISO 9001 – Quality Management System

The ISO 9001 is an internationally recognised series of standards issued by the International Standardization Organization (ISO). It relates to a tool in the development, import and improvement of an effective quality management system.

Why ISO 9001?

By implementing the ISO 9001 quality management system in your company, your company will gain insight in and will be able to manage company processes enabling targeted improvements. This will result into:
Reduced risk/ fewer mistakes
Cost savings
More satisfaction with employees, clients and suppliers
Increase in clients and/or orders
A certificate enabling you to demonstrate responsibility in terms of quality!
The costs for an ISO 9001 certification depend on a number of factors such as:

Number of standards to certify
Number of private companies and/or (branch) offices
Number of full time employees (FTEs)
Work that has to be certified

ISO 9001:2015

ISO 9001 SO 9001:2015 page
On 15 September 2015, the new ISO standard (ISO 9001:2015) was officially published.
But what exactly does it entail for you?

CHANGES BETWEEN ISO 9001:2008 AND 9001:2015 ISO

High Level Structure
Formulate delineation of the quality management system
Risk-based thinking
Greater emphasis on the organisational context
Fewer documented requirements
More requirements in terms of leadership
Less emphasis on documents
Increased emphasis on the desired outcomes in terms of customer satisfaction


The current ISO 9001:2008 certificate is valid for a period of 3 years from the official publication date. That means you must comply with the new ISO 9001:2015 standard by 15 September 2018 at the latest. Regarding the transition from ISO 9001:2008 to ISO 9001:2015, you can choose whether you wish to make the switch during a surveillance audit or a recertification audit

It is possible to achieve an ISO 9001:2008 certificate until that time. Do be aware that the certificate will not be valid for 3 years but only until 15 September 2018.
