Quality Certificate is a growing demand for various industries right now in Bangladesh. So, this is the keyword of my post in this month. Though there is many meaning of quality certificate but here in this post I will discuss only International quality or ISO Quality Standard Certificate.
ISO 9001 is also known as quality certificate or Quality Management System Certificate. It is also known as QMS in a nutshell.
9001:2015 is the latest version of ISO 9001 standard. It started in 1987. Until now it is revised five times since then. Now it is in fifth version. If you want to get quality certificate then ISO 9001:2015 is the right version for you. Previous all versions have been expired and back dated.
What does it mean quality certificate? In ISO it means quality management of a organization. Quality of different sections or quality of different department in the organization. Quality for HR Admin, Sales marketing, Procurement, Production etc. In a word quality for organization means maintaining quality in different departments of a organization.
As an example for quality in production, what does it mean? It means how you are maintaining quality of your product? Are you monitoring the product production process. Are you measuring of the product’s criteria during the production? Does it meet the client’s requirement or your own specification data? Are you keeping record of your error products? Are you taking CA Plan against frequently happened error? All these things are checked in production during ISO audit.
Participating in audit is mandatory for achieving and holding your ISO Quality certificate. Audit helps to find the facts in your production. Production staffs are asked to show the quality checking record, wastes record, machine breakdown record etc. during the ISO audit.
Not only ISO audit. Internal audit is also mandatory for ISO Certification or after ISO Certification. Usually internal audit (IA)is done inside the organization by it’s own staffs or it can be done by hiring an ISO Consultant. Without performing IA you cannot hold your iso quality certificate. It will be suspended if you do not perform IA on regular basis.
Getting a quality certificate means you are appointing your agent who will give you report of your whole organization or according to your certification scope. ISO Quality auditor will find the real facts actually what are happening in your organization during the audit, usually once in a year ISO audit is done.
Worldwide quality certificate has a great demand. Specially for EU and Middle East Buyers it is asked to the exporters or suppliers to have this certificate. It ensures the quality of your organization.
For smooth and efficient operation of a company quality certificate has a great value. It is a great tool to see your organization. It helps to get new orders from new buyers. It helps to increase your internal quality. Finally it helps to earn more revenue for your company.
