2018 has been important for Eurospuma’s quality management system due to the update to the ISO 9001:2015 standard as well as the introduction of a new certifying body - TUV Rheinland. Therefore, we are proud to say we continue to meet the expectations of our customers and partners all over the world by following this approved and improved quality management system.
What is a quality management system?
A quality management system is a structure that organizations use to meet customers and partners demands and requirements.
What is ISO 9001?
ISO 9001 is a world standard of a management system, a world benchmark for the certification of quality management systems.
The standard that determines what responsibilities and quality management procedures are attributed to each internal process. It goes deeper by outlining the tools and guidance requirements to make processes efficient. The standard is based on 7 quality management principles such as customer focus, leadership, engagement of people, process approach, improvement, evidence-based decision making and relationship management.
ISO 9001:2015 is updated version of ISO 9001:2008. It combined the evaluation approach of the previous one but also brought some important changes like risk management evaluation and some improvements for general management process. It’s unnecessary to be certified. If a company wishes to be certified, it needs to find an accredited certification entity. There are quite a lot in the market, differentiated by the services provided. No matter what certification partner audits the company, the process is always independent and impartial and requires a lot of dedication from all employees.
