Why ISO 9001?
QUALITY MANAGEMENT SYSTEM
ISO 9001 provides the framework for a quality management system and is the only standard in the ISO 9001 family that can be certified to. It can be used by any organization, large or small, regardless of industry or sector. Effective implementation of this standard is a critical part of ensuring customers get consistent, high-quality products and services.
Relationship with other management system standards
ISO 9001 AND IATF 16949
With the release of IATF 16949:2016, the text of ISO 9001 is no longer contained directly within the automotive standard, as was previously the case with ISO/TS 16949. However, ISO 9001 is still the foundation of the IATF 16949 standard, and IATF references ISO 9001 clauses throughout the document. As such, an organization that complies to IATF 16949 would also necessarily comply with all the underlying requirements inherited from ISO 9001. IATF 16949 represents the automotive-specific requirements that augment the requirements of ISO 9001.
ISO 9001 AND AS9100, AS9110 & AS9120
AS9100D, AS9110C, and AS9120B, like previous revisions of these standards, supplements ISO 9001 with additional requirements that represent the expectations of the Aviation, Space and Defense (ASD) industry.
ISO 9001 AND ISO 13485 (MEDICAL DEVICES)
While ISO 13485 is based on the ISO 9001 process model concepts of Plan, Do, Check, Act, it is designed for regulatory compliance. It is more prescriptive in nature and requires a more thoroughly documented quality management system.
