Quality / ISO 9001 Training & Consulting
Quality Assurance is an ever more integral part of the way the business world works and implementation of the ISO 9001 standard into your business practices will demonstrate to clients that it is your aim to provide and maintain a quality service. The employment of the ISO 9001 Quality standard has helped our clients to improve their ability, developing understanding and application of their procedures. As QMI’s founder stated, ‘Our experience is your Assurance’.
ISO 9001 (Quality Assurance)
This standard was published in 1994 and revised in 2000 and 2008 and describes the essential contents of a Quality Management System based on the established Plan/Do/Check/Act principle which is also implemented in the BS OHSAS 18001 Health & Safety and the Environmental ISO 14001 standards.
If your organisation is certified to one or more of these management systems then it also provides the opportunity to integrate / merge the systems. Please use the following link to our Integrated Management Systems page.
