Accredited certification to a management system benefits businesses in numerous ways. Risk mitigation is one of the key attractions. Great assurance comes when a respected, independent, accredited organisation provides certification to a management system.
With an IIOC member providing independent certification to internationally recognized standards – themselves built by a carefully managed consensus process – and then accredited by an accreditation body, customers, clients and stakeholders are benefiting from a highly robust and tested system of assurance.
Greatly improved operational efficiency can be another welcome outcome. And greater efficiency means better performance, less waste, lower costs and greater profitability. Once certified, management systems can provide a welcome boost to a business’ bottom line.
One example of this can be seen in how ISO 9001 can improve the efficiency of the supply chain, an issue covered in ISO’s ISO 9001 – What does it mean in the supply chain?
A range of case studies from companies certified by IIOC members illustrates these benefits.
