ISO Audit is an important part of companies. From this report you can know what the deviations inside your company. From this ISO audit report you can know how the company is practicing iso standard in the processes of a company.

Many government agents are looking for ISO-certified organizations before selecting their vendors as their products or service providers. They usually ask for ISO Certificate but most of them do not ask for ISO audit report. If they ask for audit report along with ISO certificate, then these suppliers or vendors may be attentive to the audit report.

Who Needs ISO 9001 Certification

ISO  9001 Standard is a quality management system standard. Any kind of organization can adopt this international standard to develop company’s processes for demonstrating his ability to consistently provide products and services that meet customer and regulatory requirements.

If any organization wants to do business with famous or  big organization then he needs this standard. If any organization wants to work as a supplier for any government organization then he needs this standard ISO 9001.

Now the question is why the big corporation or government organizations ask for small company, contractor, supplier or vendor to having this standard? There are few reasons of this rquirement: Number one is worry. The big company is worry about the small company and his capacity to supply the materials, products or services what he requires. He is not sure how the small company or his vendor maintains quality in his management. The conglomerate is worry about the ontime receiving the materials or services from the small company or vendor.

Like big organization the international buyers or importers are also worry about the exporter. They always think if he gives order to the manufacturer or supplier in another country will that company be able to deliver the products or services ontime and by maintaining quality? That’s why the buyers from abroad give condition to the supplier, exporter or manufacturers in developing countris to adopt ISO 9001 Standard.

Big organizations or foreign companies can be assured that a small company can supply his ordered product or services ontime and by maintain quality if a small company adopt ISO 9001 Standard in his organization. That’s why they look for ISO 9001 Certified organization around the world.

So, we can see that ultimately a small or SME organization needs ISO 9001 Certification to prove quality and consistently provide products or  services inside the the country or in abroad.

Disadvantages of Small company or SME organizations. There are two major problems for small compnies to adopt ISO Standard 9001. First of all cost and the second one is competent staff.
