HACCP / ISO 22001
Once considered only applicable to factories and production centres, the revised ISO 9001:2008 Quality Management Systems (QMS) Standard now has widespread international acceptance as the ISO 9001 quality management system for all types of businesses and organisations.
What is ISO 9001 Certification?
To achieve ISO 9001 certification means your company has been awarded a certificate that verifies you have achieved the official status of meeting all relevant requirements of the ISO 9001 Standard. Naturally, your certifier must be an accredited one. (Bear with me, I’ll explain below).
If you say you want to do ISO 9001 or get ISO 9001 certification, it means you want to achieve the status of holding an ISO 9001 certificate, and are then listed on the world-wide register of organisations certified to ISO 9001.
A certificate that is accepted internationally can only be awarded by a certifier who is accredited, meaning they have the proper accreditation to issue certificates to that Standard. A certifier may also be called a certifying body, a registrar or even just ‘the external auditor’.
Your company (or organisation) must have your quality management system formally audited by the certifier. The auditor/s must be competent to do the audit.
Assuming the auditor/s are satisfied that your system meets all applicable requirements of the Standard, and that proper process is followed, the certifier then issues a certificate to ISO 9001. The certificate will include the name of the certifier, the dates of issue and expiry, the relevant Standard, and usually (though not always) the scope of the certification.
The certificate must be current. Each certificate is valid for a period of 3 years from the date of issue. During this 3-year period of validity, auditor/s from the certifier return to verify that you are still meeting the requirements of the Standard. At a minimum, this will be an annual audit. At the end of the 3 years, a full certification audit occurs, and a new certificate is issued.
