PRINCIPLES OF CERTIFICATION ACCORDING TO ISO 9001

The internationally applicable standard ISO 9001 has been created by the International Organization for Standardization (ISO), whose goal is to define international requirements for a quality management system. The certificate issued by an independent accredited certification authority guarantees that a quality management system is implemented, documented and used in accordance with the requirements of ISO 9001.

BENEFITS OF CERTIFICATION

  • stabilization of the achieved quality level in the range of products and services
  • increased credibility of the company with the customers and other business partners
  • the possibility of attracting new customers thanks to providing high-quality production
  • introducing order and rules to all activities within the company
  • the possibility of the subsequent backchecking of compliance with the defined rules in the quality system
  • work with risks analysis - risk-based thinking enables an organization to determine the factors that could cause its processes and its quality management system to deviate from the planned results
  • involving the organization's leadership and understanding of the surrounding business environment

CERTIFICATION PROCESS

The basic phases of the certification procedure are as follows:

  • implementing the QMS into practice
  • preparing the documentation
  • certification by an accredited certification authority
    • assessing and registering the client’s request for certification
    • entering into a contract on the performance of a certification audit (certification audit takes place in two stages)
    • setting up a team of auditors
    • preparing a plan of the audit
    • checking the facts in stages:
      a) reviewing the client’s documentation
      b) checking the facts on site
    • drawing up a report on the result of the certification audit
    • assessment of the audit report by the certification authority
    • issuing the certificate
  • supervisory audit
    • o during the three-year validity period of the certificate, a supervisory audit is performed once a year in the first and second year. Following up on the result of the supervision, a decision will be issued on the confirmation of the validity of the certificate until the next supervision or a decision will be issued on suspending the validity of the certificate. In case of significant deviations from the requirements of the standards, it is possible – as a last resort – to revoke the certificate
  • recertification audit
    • To ensure continuous validity of certification, a recertification audit should take place based on the certificate holder’s decision in the third year before expiration of the certificate’s validity.
