ISO certification means that a company's quality management system (QMS) conforms with the requirements of the International Organization for Standardization (ISO). The most common reason for not attaining ISO certification is an inadequate document control system or quality management system.
For information on how MasterControl can help your organization with ISO certification (e.g., to meet the standards of ISO 9001 2000, ISO 13485, or ISO 14000, please download the documents listed below that talk about the different ISO standards.
It is critical that a company's system for document control and document management meet the quality standards for ISO certification. This is true whether a company needs (for example) ISO 9001 certification, ISO 13485 certification, or ISO 14000 certification.
The reason a company's document control system / document management system is so critical for ISO certification is that it is closely connected with the rest of a company's quality management system, including training management, customer complaints, CAPA, deviations management, nonconformance, audit management, etc.
Companies that have passed ISO certification and have a document control system / document management system that connects with the rest of a company's quality management system have what it takes to outdistance their competitors. It's that simple.
