What is ISO 9001 Certification?
What is ISO 9001 certification? There are several US and worldwide manufacturing standards that have been put in place for businesses to operate under. These standards show or demonstrate whether a company is one that does things the right way. Obtaining certification in these standards is something that we at Cheetah Precision wholeheartedly believe in. One of the strictest and most respected standards that any company can operate under is what’s called ISO 9001.
We are proud to say that Cheetah Precision is an ISO 9001 certified manufacturer. Our company believes so much in the guidelines established in ISO 9001, we have put stringent operating protocols in place throughout our various departments to make sure that we are always in compliance with this operating standard.
What is ISO?
ISO itself stands for the International Organization for Standardization. It’s a highly respected international standard-setting body that’s based out of Geneva, Switzerland. The individuals that make up its representatives have broad industrial, corporate, and proprietary backgrounds and each one of these representatives has many years of experience in their respective specialties. ISO’s main function is to define and implement standards and guidelines for businesses to operate under and also oversee the 3rd party experts who certify that companies are adhering to the strict operating standards that ISO has established.
What is ISO 9001?
ISO 9001 establishes criteria for the quality management standards that must be in place for the various departments that are found throughout any company. It’s also a standard that’s designed to help businesses run more efficiently with an end goal of better servicing and meeting the needs of their customers. Those businesses that comply with the guidelines put forth in this operating standard have a means where they can establish an evaluation system for their operating processes that is appropriate and effective. This helps a company identify and implement changes where improvements are needed. That company is then better able to maintain high-quality management standards throughout the business. It’s estimated that almost 1 million companies in some 160 countries around the world work hard to follow the guidelines that are outlined in ISO 9001.
