What is ISO 9001?

ISO 9001 is the most popular quality standard fully recognized and accepted worldwide. It covers general products and services across all industries, with over a million issued certificates. The standard is built on a process-based approach with the intention of achieving continuous improvement through a company’s Quality Management System (QMS).

The Plan-Do-Check-Act (PDCA) cycle, in combination with risk-based thinking, are fundamental pillars for establishing a healthy and effective management system based on the ISO 9001 structure. Due to its uniform approach and foundational principles, ISO 9001 has become the basis for other sector-specific standards such as ISO 13485 for the medical device sector, ISO/TS 16949 (now IATF 16949) for the automotive industry, and ISO 14001 for environmental management.
