Benefits of ISO 9001 Certification

Benefits of ISO 9001 Certification

We’ve provided an overview of ISO 9001 in previous articles. Today, we will dig deeper into this certification and how it benefits clients who choose to utilize an ISO 9001 certified machine shop.

The ISO 9001 standard is a quality management system (QMS) that provides guidance for organizations (i.e., machine shops) wishing to be certified in demonstrating their ability to consistently provide products and services that meet customer and regulatory requirements. A precision CNC machining facility wishing to achieve ISO 9001 certification must go through an external audit conducted by a certification body. The audit assesses whether the QMS of the machine shop meets the requirements of the ISO 9001 standard.

Precision CNC machining facilities that are successfully audited and certified are issued a certificate of compliance by the certification body. There are numerous benefits to utilizing a machine shop that is ISO 9001 certified including:

  • Improved organizational efficiency and effectiveness
  • Reduced cost of poor quality
  • Greater customer satisfaction and loyalty
  • Improved employee morale and motivation

So, as you can see, there are many good reasons to utilize an ISO 9001 precision CNC machining facility for your prototypes to production manufacturing and contract manufacturing projects. Our next article will discuss AS 9100 and the benefits of working with an AS 9100 certified machine shop.
