Quality Management System Certification

High-performing businesses know that quality management is at the root of their success. ISO 9001 Quality Management System certification by WECERT supports your drive to increase efficiency and exceed customer expectations.

Companies need to deliver products and services of consistent quality

To compete effectively and win their customers’ loyalty, companies need to deliver products and services of consistent quality. This demands a rigorous approach to quality management.
The purpose of the ISO 9001 certification process is to help you develop a robust Quality Management System (QMS) that drives continual improvement. ISO quality standards are globally recognized and trusted. The ISO 9001 standard offers flexibility, enabling you to design your own Quality Management System around your specific products, customer needs and risks. As such, it acts as an essential building block for any company looking to improve risk and quality management. ISO 9001 certification by WECERT demonstrates a commitment to quality and customer excellence

Benefits of becoming certified

Checking that your system works is a vital. Certification to ISO 9001 by an independent third-party verifies how your management system is performing and demonstrates your work to apply effective quality management principles within the organization. 

As a result:

  • Build trust in your management system’s performance internally and externally by applying effective quality management principles within the organization. 
  • Implement a structured approach to continually improving processes and knowing where to focus efforts. 
  • Enhance customer confidence and satisfaction, which in turn can lead to increased business.
  • Gain a significant competitive advantage by meeting any management system certification business requirements from customers, suppliers and sub-contractors in order to conduct business with them. 


The ISO 9001 standard can be used by any organization, regardless of its size, type or the products or services it provides. ISO 9001 Quality Management System is led by senior managers and based on detailed analysis of the organization’s context, strengths and weaknesses. Use of the Plan-Do-Check-Act cycle, supported by annual audits from WECERT , enables you to identify non-conformities and achieve continual improvement in quality.

ISO 9001 compliance involves devising then following a management system uniquely suited to your customers’ needs. ISO 9001 audits by WECERT enable you to improve customer satisfaction by regularly identifying improvements to your processes. 

Audits of your Quality Management System enable you to identify improvements to processes. These aim to drive efficiency without increasing risk, thanks to ISO 9001 certification requirements that focus on risk management. The certification standard can be used to increase employees’ awareness of risk, and help create a culture of prevention and risk management.
