How can ISO 9001:2015 certification influence the value of your company?

ISO 9001 certification is international recognition that a company follows quality standards in its processes, products and services. This certification can bring several benefits to the value of your company, such as:

  • Increase customer confidence: once the company demonstrates that it cares about the quality and continuous improvement of its products and services, it will generate customer trust and loyalty and greater predictability in sales.
  • Create a good image and reputation: ISO 9001 certification is also a way of differentiating yourself from the competition and positioning by presenting a certification that there is professional management in the company, which creates security for other stakeholders.
  • Reducing costs and waste: by implementing a quality management system based on ISO 9001, the company can identify and eliminate flaws, errors and duplications in its processes, which reduces operational costs and increases efficiency and productivity .
  • Access to new markets and opportunities: ISO 9001 certification can open doors for new customers, suppliers and partners, both national and international, who require or value this certification. Furthermore, certification can facilitate participation in public and private competitions.
    To obtain this certification, the company must go through an external audit process carried out by an accredited entity, which will verify whether the company meets the requirements of the ISO 9001 standard. This process can take a few months or even years, depending on the size and the complexity of the company. Furthermore, the company must maintain an updated and effective quality management system, which is subject to periodic internal audits and external audits for maintenance or renewal of certification.
