ISO 9001 certification shows customers that you have the right measures for this. Customers set high demands of your organization in terms of the quality and reliability of your services. It is therefore important that your products/services structurally meet the level of quality you promise to your customers. With ISO 9001 certification, you show that this is actually the case

The standard

The ISO 9001 standard is the worldwide standard for quality management. The basis for this is the implementation of an internal quality management system. In this you define your objectives, how you plan, execute and evaluate the delivery of your products/services, what resources you need for this and how you limit the risks of quality disruption.


The implementation of a quality management system gives the employees in your organization clarity about goals, processes and responsibilities. Work is also carried out more efficiently and effectively, reducing failure (and other) costs. If you set up the system in accordance with the ISO 9001 standard and have its operation tested and certified by an independent accredited party, you demonstrate to your customers in a simple, transparent and globally accepted manner that you monitor your internal processes, monitor the quality of the output and work on continuous improvement. So your customers have peace of mind when doing business with you. It’s not surprising that ISO 9001 is a common requirement in tenders.
