What Does It Mean to be ISO Certified?
ISO, the International Organization for Standardization, develops global standards to certify that businesses are able to meet the expectations of customers properly and for some industries is a legal or contractual obligation. This certification verifies that we meet the requirements for standardization and quality assurance. Testing is provided by third-party services.
ISO certifications exist in many areas of industry including medical devices, pharmaceutical, engineering, and energy management. ISO standards are in place to ensure consistency. The ISO certification we currently hold at BioTeknica is ISO 9001:2015.
Why is ISO Certification Important?
ISO Standards are important to ensure quality and safety in both products and services in international trade.
Businesses can be seen to benefit from ISO standards as they can help cut costs by improved systems and procedures put in place. If an organization presents itself as “ISO 9001 Certified,” this means the organization has met the requirements designated under ISO 9001. ISO 9001 requires organizations to consistently define and follow a quality management system that is both appropriate and effective while also requiring them to identify areas for improvement and take action toward those improvements.
This leads to more customer satisfaction and builds trust between us and our clients.
