ISO Certification

The International Standards Organization (ISO) is a global organization that provides companies with guidelines on product quality, health, and performance. ISO certification improves the reputation of your service or product. ISO certification comes in various forms, such as ISO 9001, ISO 14001, ISO 5001, and so on.

ISO 9000 is regarded as a mark of quality and prestige. Companies choose ISO 9001:2015, ISO 19011:2018, and ISO 9000:2015 to meet regulatory requirements and customer satisfaction.
QMS is a structured framework of policies, processes, and procedures for planning and execution in an organization’s core business areas. The international standard for QMS is ISO 9001:2015. It is widely recognized and accepted around the world, and it can be implemented by all small, medium, and large businesses to improve efficiency, quality, and profits. It also aids in the reduction of waste and the reduction of costs.

Incorpz assists companies with all types of ISO certification. We deal with the following certifications:

  • ISO 9001:2015
  • ISO 14001:2015
  • ISO 45001:2018

  • ISO 50001:2011
  • ISO 28000:2007
  • IATF 16949:2016

The Need for an ISO Certification for a Company – Benefits

The primary reason a company requires ISO certification is because it is required by law or contract. The secondary reasons for adhering to the standards are as follows:

  • It provides a platform for an organization that is recognized by game changers and decision makers.
  • Identifying and resolving recurring issues saves valuable time and financial support.
  • Processes become more efficient, which benefits the overall system.
  • They provide a company with the necessary competitive advantage during contract tenders.
  • The same resources result in increased value and worth.
  • Customers’ perception of the company grows tenfold, and as a result, their satisfaction grows tenfold.

An increasing number of businesses are opting for ISO 9001 certification because the standard benefits them by continuously improving their outcomes and processes, and it is a valuable prerequisite for customer acquisition.

If ISO 9001 is implemented with the proper legal guidance, the certification is bound to benefit an organisation exponentially.

Additional advantages of ISO Certification

An ISO Certification is a guarantee that every item manufactured or sold by the company meets global standards. It ensures that the company only provides high-quality products or services.

Furthermore, certification provides the customer with the assurance that the product or service meets superior quality standards. The ISO mark elevates a product above the competition in the eyes of the customer, increasing sales. In other words, certification is the simplest tool for marketing and branding your services or goods.

  • Nowadays, government tenders and proposals accept ISO-certified businesses’ bids.
  • Because ISO certifications meet international standards, they assist businesses in reaching out to global customers.
  • There are various types of ISO certifications available on the market to meet the needs of various types of organizations. ISO certification has been shown to increase business goodwill and repeat purchases.
  • A defective product is duly rejected. When international standards are followed, these rejections are rare.
    Because ISO SOPs require seamless operations, business efficiency improves. As a result, the firm’s functionality and operations improve.
  • The mark of an ISO 9001 Certification is automatic product branding and marketing because it doubles a company’s credibility.
  • An ISO 9001 certification will put your company or organization on the path to profitability and on par with global standards.
  • The company will see consistent improvement and performance, allowing it to provide customers with services and products that exceed their expectations. This is a cycle that will have an indirect positive impact on the overall satisfaction and morale of the organization.

Prerequisites for ISO registration for a business

Before obtaining an ISO certification, the following factors must be considered:

  • The first step is to obtain the appropriate ISO 9001 certification that will benefit a business.
  • The second step is to find the best ISO registrar who is ISO certified and strictly adheres to the CASCO standards. The ISO body may be both IAF and non-IAF certified. IAF is an abbreviation for International Accreditation Forum. An IAF accreditation merely adds credibility to the certificate, and the lack of an IAF accreditation has no bearing on the legality of the certification. These third-party agencies will test and evaluate the company on behalf of ISO.

At Incorpz, we do the groundwork and assist businesses in finding the best ISO registrar and the specific certification they require.

ISO certification & registration in India

At Incorpz, our experts guide you through the step-by-step process of registering for ISO certification. In India, the procedure includes the following steps:

Complete ISO Form

An online ISO application form must be completed with all required information and documents. Some of the information would include details about the nature of the business, the company address, and the number of years in operation.

Consultation on registration type

Because ISO has many different types of certifications, it is highly recommended that you consult an expert before deciding on the best accreditation standard for you.

Document submission

Every document submitted with the application is verified, and the data is double checked. They are then submitted to the appropriate ISO registrar. Once the submission has been confirmed, online payment must be made using one of the available payment methods.

ISO Audit

An ISO audit is a thorough examination or verification of your company’s process records. Audits are classified into three types:

First party audit or internal audit: Conducted internally by trained members of your own staff. It can also be done by a third-party company.

Second party audit or supplier audit: Lead auditors in your organization conduct the audit. This is done to ensure that your suppliers function properly and that you receive the correct supply of products/services. If you don’t have the qualified resources, these can be performed by external agencies as internal audits.

Third party audit or certification audit: This can only be performed by Certification Bodies’ auditors.
An ISO audit for the business is conducted based on the documents submitted, and the authenticity of the documents is verified. The authority then makes a decision based on the procedures that have been established.

FAQs on ISO Certification

☑ Will I be issued a certificate during the pre-audit stage?

No, you will not receive a certificate during the pre-audit stage. The auditor will only assess your business system and procedures in order to make recommendations to help you make your company ISO compliant.

☑ Is it possible for me to choose any ISO accreditation?

No, not all ISO certifications are authentic and valid. It is critical that you select the appropriate ones. Contact Incorpz today to find out which ones are the best for you. Our agents will assist you in making your decision.

Is an ISO certification equivalent to a permit or a license?

ISO certification only certifies standards and has nothing to do with permits or licenses. Even if you have an ISO certification, you will still require government and authority permission, permits, and licenses to operate your business.

☑ Is it necessary for me to renew my ISO certificate?

No, but auditors do surprise checks from time to time to see if your company’s standards and procedures meet the ISO mark.

☑ What is the difference between ISO accreditation and ISO certification?

ISO accreditation and ISO certification go hand in hand and are sometimes interchangeable because they both serve as proof of the Quality Management System (QMS). However, there is a slight difference in recognizing the difference between the two.
ISO (International Organization for Standardization) certification is presented to a company as a whole, which approves the entire company’s QMS standards, with ISO accreditation provided for specific organizational activities. Furthermore, ISO accreditation represents an independent third-party endorsement of the certification, whereas ISO certification acts as a third-party endorsement of the organization’s systems (products/services).

☑ Is it possible to obtain ISO certification for a startup company?

Yes, ISO certification can be obtained for a startup company. However, it is not required. It is up to the business strategies to pursue the certificate. It is a good idea to implement ISO (International Organization for Standardization), but it is not necessary to sign up right away.
It is critical to remember that customers frequently seek ISO certified products because they have high standards and consistency. Whether your company is based on products or services, you can obtain ISO certification at any time with the assistance of the best legal advisors. You can opt out of ISO at any time, as per the entire team/management’s decision.

☑ What factors influence the cost of ISO certification?

The cost of ISO certification is determined by the number of days spent auditing your organization as well as the other criteria. If the registrar does not live in the region/district, there will be travel and lodging expenses. There are also administration and accreditation fees to consider. It also entails the development and implementation of internal costs. Aside from that, there may be consultant fees; the consultant fees vary depending on the type of organization.

To obtain an ISO certificate for your company, the products/services must be implemented in such a way that they meet the latest ISO principles and standards.

In India, the Ministry of MSME is in charge of providing ISO certification.

☑ How long does the ISO Certification Process take for different industries? – For example, small, medium, and large organizations.

The time required to obtain an ISO certificate varies depending on the organization. Even small businesses in India must wait at least six months to obtain an ISO certificate. Furthermore, the time is determined by the size of the company. Let’s take a look at them in the following order:

  • Small businesses will need 6 to 8 months to obtain ISO certification.
  • The time it takes for medium-sized businesses to obtain ISO certification ranges between 8 and 12 months.
  • Large organizations require 12 to 15 months to obtain ISO certification.

☑ How long is the ISO certification valid for?

In India, the ISO certificate is valid for three years. The ISO can be revalidated, but the process remains the same. The reassessment process includes document verification and reviews of quality management systems, both of which must be maintained overall. The recertification can be applied for before the certificate expires, that is, before the third year is up.
During the duration of the ISO certificate, the ISO body conducts an annual evaluation of the system and closely monitors it.
Hiring a legal consultant is always the best and safest option.

☑ Can I transfer my ISO certification, and how does that work?

Yes, you can transfer your ISO certification; however, your current certificate must be accredited by an IAF or a registrar in order to be transferred.

  • To begin, locate a legal consultant/auditor who can assist you in transferring the certificate.
  • Second, gather all of your documents in one location and double-check that everything is in order.
  • The previous audit reports will be verified.
  • While conducting the audits, the auditors will verify any non-conformances.
  • A new certification will be issued after the registrar’s approval.
  • After that, the certification will be added to the public registration database.

Thus, the transfer of ISO certification takes place.

☑ What ISO standards do I require?

To determine your ISO standard, you must first contact your ISO body. There are numerous standards, and you can select the best one with the assistance of a legal consultant.

Listed below are some ISO standards:

  • ISO 9000 – Quality Management.
  • ISO / IEC 27000 – Information Security Management Systems.
  • ISO 14000 – Environmental Management.
  • ISO 31000: 2018 – Risk Management.
  • ISO 50001: 2018 – Energy Management.
  • ISO 26000: 2010 – Social Responsibility.
  • ISO 28000: 2007 – Specifications for Security Management Systems for the Supply Chain
  • ISO 37001: 2016 Anti-Bribery Management Systems
  • ISO 45001 – Occupational Health and Safety
  • ISO 22000 – Food Management Systems

You can select one of the above-mentioned ISO standards based on your product/service requirements.

☑ What is ISO 9001:2008? – Define each clause

An ISO 9001 certified company is one that has chosen to implement the international Quality Management System standard in its operations and that its management adheres to the standard’s requirements. Because ISO 9001:2008 is focused on meeting customer expectations and delivering customer satisfaction, paying attention to customers is recommendable. However, ISO certified organizations can be said to be driven by processes rather than people.
This international certification is a mark of your company’s credibility in terms of business, safe products, and a productive work environment.

☑ What is ISO 9001:1987?

The ISO 9001 standard is the Quality Management Systems (QMS) issued by ISO (the International Organization for Standardization). This organization creates, publishes, and maintains over 22,450 standards through professional committees with representatives from all over the world. These requirements guide the development and manufacturing of products, the conduct of precise experiments, and the establishment of management processes.

In the 1980s, the International Organization for Standardization used British standards in its international criteria and credential qualifications for the first time. The first ISO 9000 standard was published in 1987. The ISO 9001:1987 standard was well-organized, with twenty items required, but its emphasis was on procedure enforcement, with the ultimate goal of creating a high-quality operation.

☑ What is ISO 9000:1994?

ISO 9000 is a set of standards designed to assist organizations in meeting the needs of their customers or other stakeholders while adhering to statutory and regulatory requirements relating to a product or service.
Rather than simply testing the finished component, ISO 9000:1994 emphasized quality assurance through proactive measures and began to require documented proof of compliance. Businesses continued to enforce their specifications in the first year by generating procedural manual shelf loads and becoming frustrated by an ISO bureaucracy. In some industries, the quality control method may cause a delay in adapting and developing processes.

☑ What is ISO 9001:2000?

With their merger in 1994, the ISO 9001:2000 – ‘Quality Management Systems – Requirements’ standard replaced the ISO 9001, 9002, and 9003 standards. It specifies the procedures for quality control. Its primary goal is to meet our customers’ needs while also providing services/products that are consistent and constantly improving. A Management Structure is a collection of interconnected elements that assist a company in identifying and achieving policies and objectives. A quality management scheme is a set of organized practices used to guide and control an organization’s quality. In reality, this is how things are done to meet consumer quality expectations.
