ISO, more formally known as the International Organisation for Standardisation, describe the set of guidelines and certifications that every professional service should maintain. These ensure businesses deliver quality products and services by adhering to national safety standards throughout not just the UK, but the world. This makes national trade and work services more efficient and sustainable ensuring the quality and reliability of international trade. There are standards that cover all industries from Food Safety, Aerospace and Defence, Environmental, Health and Safety, Medical, Quality Management Systems (QMS) etc. Clear Quality understands that it can be difficult to navigate and understand the terminology of these standards, let alone come up with a concrete plan to achieve accreditation, but that’s why we are here to take the pressure away.
ISOs can seem daunting, particularly when thinking about the third-party assessments however, they are not here to trap you. Once you understand the requirements of these standards, it is much easier to recognise the benefits they provide and how they can support and add value to your business.
