Implementing ISO 9001 in small business can be hard work
Small and medium size enterprises (SME’s) have different needs and challenges compared to large organisations. However, with limited resources and often unwritten procedures many SME’s have difficulty in implementing quality management systems based on ISO 9001:2015.
A guide for small business
ISO 9001:2015 for Small Enterprises – What to do? has just been updated to align with the newly revised version of ISO 9001:2015, Quality management systems – Requirements.
ISO’s essential guide for SMEs wishing to implement a quality management system (QMS) has just been updated, providing practical advice and comprehensive examples tailored specifically for the smaller organisation.
The guide was written by experts from ISO/TC 176/SC 2, the technical subcommittee that developed ISO 9001:2015. It features useful information from how to get started right through to guidance for those seeking certification. It includes practical advice on the different ways of approaching a quality management system (QMS) as well as detailed guidance on each element of ISO 9001:2015.
