Gaining certification from LRQA demonstrates that your quality management system (QMS) follows a robust and globally recognised approach that’s focused on continually improving your processes and managing business risks to meet the needs and expectations of your customers and other stakeholders.

Benefits of ISO 9001

Satisfied customers

Designed for organisations of any size and in any sector, ISO 9001:2015 certification enables you to demonstrate that you are committed to meeting customer and stakeholder needs and expectations through quality and continual improvement.

New business opportunities

In many cases, independent third-party certification to ISO 9001 is a requirement to trade and through our globally recognised brand, certification from LRQA can provide a competitive advantage. Where certification is not a contractual obligation, it provides credibility to develop secure business relationships within your supply chain.

Streamlined processes

By following the best practice principles found in ISO 9001, certification helps develop a more robust approach to risk management and a greater understanding of the internal and external context of your organisation, which will contribute to your business effectiveness and performance.

Easy integration

ISO 9001 follows Annex SL, the High Level Structure used by all new and revised ISO standards, which makes it far simpler for management system controls to be integrated into a single ‘business management system’, helping reduce duplication in cost and effort.
