What is the ISO standard?
The International Organization for Standardization (ISO) is an international standard-setting body composed of representatives from various national standards organizations. Founded on 23 February 1947, the organization promotes worldwide proprietary, industrial and commercial standards.
What are the benefits of ISO International Standards?
ISO International Standards ensure that products and services are safe, reliable and of good quality. For business, they are strategic tools that reduce costs by minimizing waste and errors and increasing productivity. They help companies to access new markets, level the playing field for developing countries and facilitate free and fair global trade. ISO International Standards provide practical tools for tackling many of today’s global challenges.
Setting up a quality management system, documenting how the system should work, writing a quality manual, controlling the documents and the system and managing records suitably are some of the criteria required to get an ISO 9001 quality management certification. There is a long list of requirements to achieve certification, including several categories for the specified criteria.
International Organization for Standardization (ISO) does not certify organizations itself. Numerous certification bodies exist, which audit organizations and, upon success, issue ISO compliance certificates.
Although commonly referred to as "ISO 9000" certification, the actual standard to which an organization's quality management system can be certified is ISO 9001:2015 (ISO 9001:2008 will expire by around September 2018). Many countries have formed accreditation bodies to authorize ("accredit") the certification bodies. Both the accreditation bodies and the certification bodies – like BestCorporateAcademy – charge fees for their services.
ISO 14000 is a family of standards related to environmental management that exists to help organizations (a) minimize how their operations (processes, etc.) negatively affect the environment (i.e., cause adverse changes to air, water, or land); (b) comply with applicable laws, regulations, and other environmentally oriented requirements, and (c) continually improve in the above.
ISO 14000 is similar to ISO 9000 quality management in that both pertain to the process of how a product is produced, rather than to the product itself.
The Occupational Health and Safety Assessment Series, OHSAS 18000 has been developed to help organizations control and minimize occupational health and safety risks. OHSAS 18001 is a specific standard for occupational health and safety management systems designed to eliminate or minimize the risk to employees and other interested parties who may be exposed to occupational health and safety risks associated with the business activities.
OHSAS 18001 is compatible with ISO 9001 and ISO 14001 management systems.
OHSAS 180o1 represents a progression of a management system philosophy from quality to environmental, continuing to occupational health and safety.
