BD Quality Certificates post will help you to know what is quality certificate. It will also help you how to get quality certificates in Bangladesh. Quality means here in this post is ISO quality certificates. It is known as ISO 9001 Certificates. It is also called QMS or quality management System certificates.
Quality certificates can be achieved from ISO Certification Bodies or from ISO Companies. In Bangladesh almost all certifications body are from abroad. Most of the foreign bodies have agent in Bangladesh to perform audits before quality certificates for the company. AAS is the UK based ISO Certification body partner in Bangladesh who perform audits before issuing quality certificates.
To get quality certificates it is necessary to implement ISO 9001 requirements in your organization. You can apply that in all the processes or departments. However, you have the right to choose the processes for implementing 9001 requirements in your organization.
Quality certificates are issued by the CB(Certification Body) after performing audit in your organization. But before CB audit you need to implement some requirements. Some documents like quality policy, quality objectives, QMS scope setting, Process related some documents etc. Internal audit record, training record, calibration record(if necessary) Management Review Meeting record, Product or service monitoring record, NC record etc are the precondition to get certified on quality.
Recently we are observing some Indian Certification Bodies are tempting Bangladeshi organizations to obtain quality certificates for cheap price without implementation of ISO 9001 requirements. I will suggest those organizations please do not fall on their dishonest offer. Those quality certificates will not add value in your organization. So, taking those cheap certificates from them means you are keeping your company far from knowing about quality. That type of quality certificates will not help you to buildup the foundation of quality.
Before quality certification you need to prepare some guidelines, you need to do internal audit and management review meeting. A consultant can help you to prepare those guidelines. But it is a matter of extra cost without certification cost. Though it is extra cost but you cannot avoid those cost if you really want quality practice in your organization.
To reduce extra cost before certification you can hire free lancer quality consultant who can help you to prepare those guidelines. He can help you to do internal audit at a very low cost. AAS has well known quality free lancer consultants in Bangladesh on various ISO standards. So, to get a quality consultant you can contact with AAS .

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.
