Are You Aware Of The Latest ISO Certification Requirements?

Wednesday, June 1, 2016 | Operational Excellence

Are you aware of the latest ISO certification requirements? ISO 9001 is a standard that sets out the requirements for a quality management system. It helps businesses and organizations to be more efficient and improve customer satisfaction. The ISO 9001 standard was revised in September 2015.

At Impact Washington, we use the principles of Lean Manufacturing to ensure your implemented Management System adds value to your organization.  By concentrating first on the documented information required by the standard and then adding elements as needed, the result is an effective management system that is sized appropriately to the company.

We tailor our approach to your organization.  While some consultants use a single approach that applies to all companies, we work to understand the company to help you build a system that fits the company’s culture.

How Impact Washington Helps Companies with ISO 9001/AS9100 Requirements:

  • Direction: We help companies define and communicate their vision and values. Before processes can be defined and improved, it is imperative that management commitment and employee understanding are aligned.
  • Effective Metrics: Once a clear direction is communicated, we help companies identify effective metrics that define where the company is today.
  • Process Control: We help companies determine how much control to apply to each process.  We help to find the balance between doing the work right first and wasting.
  • Improvements: Using the best improvement strategies, our experts help your organization correct problems, manage risk, and improve processes.

Impact Washington has a proven record in helping companies achieve third-party registration for the first time.  Please call me to discuss how we may help you with your ISO certifications.
