What is an ISO Quality Management System?
ISO Certifications are a set of standards that outline the requirements for a Quality Management System. Their purpose is to assist businesses and organisations in developing more efficient operations and improving customer satisfaction.
The purpose of obtaining an ISO Certification is not to impose something new on your organisation, but rather to provide you with a formal, well designed system for guaranteeing the delivery of quality products and services.
The International Organization for Standardization (ISO) are committed to providing tools for organisations globally to improve the quality of their operations. The ISO standards are revised regularly to keep up with global business trends.
What myths and misconceptions are there surrounding ISO Certifications?
ISO Certifications Are Outdated
ISO standards are regularly updated to reflect the current global business environment. The latest editions incorporate elements such as a focus on stakeholders and the impact of new technology.
ISO standards are designed to be very flexible and adaptable to a variety of contexts. Instead of defining what ‘quality’ and ‘customer needs’ are, for example, it asks the business to define those for themselves and continually improve their processes to reach their objectives.
ISO Certification is Only for Big Businesses
ISO certifications are employed by the full spectrum of businesses. At Integrated Compliance Solutions, our main target market is small to medium enterprises. Small companies may not have internal staff dedicated to compliance, however they can still benefit enormously from implementing ISO standards.
The International Organization for Standardization (ISO), have several resources outlining the benefits of ISO certifications for small businesses – not just large multinationals.
ISO Certifications are Complicated and Overly Bureaucratic
ISO Certifications may seem difficult to understand at first, however, the standards are founded on simple core business and risk management principles.
Integrated Compliance Solutions are committed to simplifying the process. We specialise in helping your business develop lean, low document ISO management systems which meet all the requirements, while focussing mainly on how you can operate your business more efficiently and profitably.

Published in March 2018, ISO 45001 assists organisations in reducing threats across all operations, taking a proactive approach to risk management and focussing on preventative health and wellness. It has now replaced the previous OHSAS 18001 standards. To remain compliant, businesses who have achieved compliance to OHSAS 18001 needed to transition to the latest standard before the 1 March 2021. While it isn’t mandatory for those who have AS 4801 certification to make the transition, there are still numerous benefits that becoming ISO 45001 compliant can bring to your business.
