The ISO 9001 certification is a common and valuable certification that many manufacturers adhere to. If you’ve been looking for manufacturing services for your project, then you have probably seen the ISO certification or at least know what it is. But why is it so important for you that a manufacturer is ISO certified? That’s what we’ll be going over in this article.
A brief introduction to ISO Certification
To understand its importance, first we should know exactly what an ISO certification is and what it means when someone is ISO certified. The International Organization for Standardization is an independent, nongovernmental, and international organization that has developed a wide range of standards for quality, safety and efficiency of products and services. There are many different types of ISO standards, usually distinguished by the industry or the types of products or services they manage.
ISO certifications of any kind are invaluable tools for manufacturers. They provide a layout of what the company needs, such as the specific standards that should be met, how to check the quality of a process or product, and what tools are needed to ensure that the shop’s quality, consistency, and safety meet ISO’s standards. They are also regularly revisited and updated as technology and knowledge advance.
Why ISO certification is important
ISO certification has many benefits for manufacturers and their partners alike. Having the certification indicates to potential suppliers and customers that a qualified third party has ensured that their quality management system meets the internationally-recognized standards set by the ISO. You can be assured that they are well acquainted with the quality standards necessary to your particular industry and have experience manufacturing products and tools for that market, especially if their ISO certification is specifically geared toward a sector, like the ISO 13485 for medical equipment.
Since ISO certifications are always updating and improving, they also push manufacturers to improve their quality management system, and the quality of their production as a result. This ensures that your products and services will also be relevant and up to standard. You can be sure that an ISO certified manufacturer will supply quality products, tools, and manufacturing services to you.
