Reap the Benefits of the Updated Quality and Environmental Standards in 2018
MSI has had two customers go through their initial certification and a re certification to the ISO 9001: 2015 Standard in January. Both were very successful. Less documentation is mandated with both of the ISO 9001 and 14001 Standards. You get to dictate what processes need the most attention. Also the Standards help you: Assess the overall context of your organization to define who is affected by your work and what your customers and other interested parties expect from your company. This creates a more systematic approach by understanding these needs to clearly state your objectives and identify new business opportunities. Putting your customers first, has always been a driving principle. This makes sure that all of your employees consistently meet customers’ needs and enhance their satisfaction. This can lead to repeat customers, new clients and increased business for your organization. One of the key subtle changes that we really like is for organizations to determine their Strategic Direction. This was assumed, but now it is actually referenced in the body of the requirements within the context of the organization, leadership, policy and the management review sections. Certification benefits all types of companies even more so as these Standards were written to be more suitable and especially with intent to increase sustainability of your business.
