ISO 9001 – Quality Management System Certification
ISO 9001 is the international standard for Quality Management Systems (QMS), published by ISO (International Organization for Standardization).
The ISO 9001 standard defines the minimum requirements that the Quality Management System of an organization must demonstrate to satisfy in order to guarantee the level of product and service quality that it claims to possess with itself and with the market. Today it is the best known international standard, applicable to any organization, public or private, regardless of size, type and economic sector to which it belongs.
It represents the opportunity for the organization to build a Management System that takes into consideration all business processes to ensure the optimization of the use of its resources, to reduce production costs, to achieve the expected objectives and to maintain a constant quality level of its product / service in order to increase customer satisfaction. It promotes the adoption of a process-based approach in developing, implementing and improving the effectiveness of a quality management system, in order to increase customer satisfaction by meeting customer requirements.
The ISO 9001 standard does not explain how to set up the management model from a qualitative point of view, but is intended to encourage companies to be aware of the objectives they want to achieve by making the best use of their resources.
ISO 14001 – Certification of the Environmental Management System
The ISO 14001 standard represents the regulatory reference point for companies and organizations that have, or intend to have, an Environmental Management System. The standard defines an “Environmental Management System” as part of the company management system aimed at managing environmental aspects, meeting the obligations of legislative compliance and addressing and evaluating risks and opportunities.
The Environmental Management System is therefore characterized by the development and implementation of the environmental policy and the objectives that commit the organization to full mandatory (legislative) and voluntary compliance (with respect to additional voluntary requirements or dictated by the market to which it belongs). The organization itself, therefore, subscribes to these requirements in order to establish or integrate in its internal organizational system the rules for effective management with reference to the significant environmental aspects. The environmental management system must be developed with reference to the requirements specified in the UNI EN ISO 14001 standard. The degree of application depends on factors such as: the environmental policy of the organization, the nature of its activities, products and services, location and conditions under which the organization operates.
Iso / Iec 27001 – Information Security Management Systems
The loss of information, the theft of confidential data and the corruption of critical documents are difficult events that can have a serious impact on the activities of every organization and company. It therefore becomes essential that all systems that hold information deemed valuable are protected through the use of an information management system (ISMS).
The ISO / IEC 27001 Information Security Management System (ISMS) intends to regulate the entire sector of information security, risk management, metrics and measurement issues, especially the effectiveness of the security systems implemented and methodologies of implementation.
Born with this purpose, the ISO / IEC 27001 standard provides a structure for the voluntary implementation of an ISMS (Information Security Management System), safeguarding information resources and making it easier to manage, measure and improve the process. The main advantage of an ISMS is the reduction of information security risks by reducing the probability of information security incidents and the impact they cause.
ISO 45001 – Occupational Health and Safety Management Systems
The ISO 45001 standard requires organizations that decide to implement a Workers’ Health and Safety Management System to look beyond short-term issues, and to take into account what society in general expects from the organization itself in terms of responsibility.
With the growth of globalization and global trade, the expectation of ethical behavior of organizations in every aspect of their business grows as well, and in particular in the attention to the health and safety of their employees. In addition to an internationally recognized standard, ISO 45001 offers organizations the correct address to formalize and structure risk management, management of legislative compliance, the dissemination of safer work practices and the assessment of safety performance and workers’ health. The systemic approach facilitates the decrease in the number of accidents and business continuity.
