ISO Certification: Why get certified to ISO Standards?
Achieve and Promote High Ethical Standards
Certification to ISO standards or British standards demonstrates that your organisation operates according to international or national best practices thereby signifying your firm’s credibility and competence to stakeholders and customers. Certifications are legally obligated in some industries, while in other sectors they are often included in tender requirements. The guidelines set forth by the standards are applicable to all types and sizes of organisations and aren’t restricted by industry, risk exposure or geographic reach.
When a company implement these systems and applies for certification through an ISO certification body, it needs to clear a surveillance audit as well as a certification audit. The certification body audits the company’s system and for adherence to bare minimum requirements mentioned in ISO. On successful completion of an audit, the organisation is ISO certified by the certification body. This cycle is repeated every three years to ensure the effectiveness of the system, along with a surveillance audit every year.
