ISO refers to International Organization for Standardisation. It is an independent organisation that provides standards in terms of quality, safety, and efficiency of products and services provided by businesses. ISO certification helps to improve your business credibility as well as overall efficiency of the business.
ISO Certification verifies that the business organization is maintaining a proper management system or manufacturing process or service quality or documentation and quality assistance. There are different ISO’s for different industries or business types such as Information Technology system, health and safety occupations, Food quality management system, medical and surgical equipment’s manufacturing, social accountability, environmental safety etc. to name a few.
Each above certification has different numbers and quality management and assurance criteria. Any business seeking for ISO has to go through the quality check standards specifically made for particular ISO. As the assurance is related to quality hence it is not an act the business organization needs to maintain such standards throughout the entire period of certification.
