About ISO 9001

The ISO 9001 standard describes the requirements for a quality management system implemented by organizations to assure the quality of its services and/or products. The ISO 9001 standard is based on a number of quality management principles including customer satisfaction, top management commitment, the process approach and continuous improvement. Using ISO 9001 helps an organization ensure that customers get consistent, good quality products and services, which in turn provides business benefits. ISO 9001 includes similar requirements as ISO 22000, but it is not focused on food safety.
