Certifying Organization: BVQI 

The ISO 9000 family of standards relate to quality management systems and are designed to help organizations ensure they meet the needs of customers

and other stakeholders. The standards are published by ISO, the International Organization for Standardization and are available through National standards bodies.

ISO 9000 deals with the fundamentals of quality management systems, including the eight management principles on which the family of standards is based. ISO 9001 deals with the requirements that organizations wishing to meet the standard have to meet.

Independent confirmation that organizations meet the requirements of ISO 9001 may be obtained from third party certification bodies. Over a million organizations worldwide are independently certified making ISO 9001 one of the most widely used management tools in the world today.

ISO 9001 specifies the basic requirements for a quality management system (QMS) that an organization must fulfil to demonstrate its ability to consistently provide products (which include services) that enhance customer satisfaction and meet applicable statutory and regulatory requirements.

The standard can be used for certification/registration and contractual purposes by organizations seeking recognition of their quality management system. ISO 9001 has been organized in a user-friendly format with terms that are easily recognized by all business sectors.
