ISO (International Organization for Standardization) certifications are a set of international standards that provide a framework for quality management, environmental management, information security management, and other management systems. These standards are developed and maintained by ISO, an independent, non-governmental international organization that brings together experts from various countries to develop and publish standards for various industries.
Various accredited third party certification bodies perform the audits and issue the certificates to their clients. ISO certifications are awarded to organizations that have implemented and demonstrated compliance with the specific ISO standard(s) relevant to their business operations.
Obtaining an ISO certification involves undergoing a formal audit by an accredited certification body to assess the organization’s compliance with the relevant ISO standard. Once an organization has demonstrated compliance, it is awarded the certification, which is typically valid for three years. The organization must then undergo periodic audits to maintain the certification.
ISO certifications can provide various benefits to organizations, including improved efficiency, enhanced customer satisfaction, increased credibility, and access to new markets.
