Is ISO 9001 Certification Mandatory?

ISO 9001 certification is not mandatory for businesses, but it can be very beneficial. Certified companies generally boast a higher level of customer satisfaction, and ISO certification is required to win big contracts in certain sectors.


How ISO 9001 can benefit your business

  • Implementing a quality management system (QMS) that meets the requirements for ISO 9001 certification will help your organisation to operate more efficiently and achieve continuous improvement.

  • As the quality of your output increases, so too will customer satisfaction. This should mean fewer complaints for you to deal with, and more people recommending your business to other potential customers.

  • A valid ISO 9001 certificate can win you more business. For one thing, ISO certification is recognised all over the world as a reliable mark of quality, so advertising the fact that you're certified will help your company to stand out from the competition.

  • You may also be able to bid for prestigious contracts for which ISO 9001 certification is a mandatory requirement. This is quite common in the defence and aerospace sectors, for example.
