3 Reasons To Adopt ISO 9001
3 Reasons to adopt ISO 9001
The ISO 9001 standard : a quality approach
The ISO 9001 standard certifies the implementation of quality management within the structure. The main objective of the standard is to improve customer satisfaction. This certification has many other advantages, even for small structures such as Junior Enterprises. Indeed, this management method makes possible the harmonization of working methods, the clarification of roles and positions of each. It makes it possible to improve the quality of studies, by improving processes which allows an organization to work better and faster, thus improving the quality of its products. Certification also aims to avoid costs of non-quality, such as returns-guarantees, errors … In conclusion, the ISO 9001 standard, by its implementation, reduces risks and allows to seize new opportunities growth.
Certification synonymous with growth
The ISO 9001 standard is also coveted by small structures. This is why JEENISo has implemented step-by-step procedures adapted to their pace and needs. Even if the small structures are generally the most reluctant to the idea of implementing such a quality approach, they are the ones who benefit most. Very often, the main obstacle for small structures is cost, since this requires recruiting a person over the long term. In Junior Enterprise, the flexibility of the structure allows a member to be dedicated to this task. The ISO 9001 standard also allows Junior Enterprises to gain credibility on the market. Indeed, a Junior-Company certified ISO 9001 will be favored and recommended over other structures because the standard is synonymous with rigor and professionalism.
We can also add that the current challenge of Junior-Enterprises is to set up at an international level, therefore, the standard makes it possible to gain visibility internationally. Indeed, the standard is recognized worldwide.
Internationally recognized accreditation
France is surprisingly ahead in terms of certification at the European level by Italy. In fact, according to the ISO organization in 2015, France holds 7% of accreditations, and Italy 30%. Europe (42.5%) and Asia (40.9%) together account for 80% of the certificates issued worldwide. Nevertheless, it is surprising to note that world economic powers, such as the United States have few certificates. In the United States, only 3.2% of organizations have the ISO 9001 standard compared to 28.4% for China.
Ultimately, the ISO 9001 standard assesses and accredits management by reliable quality that improves customer satisfaction. In general, the standard is also made for SMEs, TPE and all small structures, so it is recommended for Junior-Enterprises. Finally, the international report shows us that evolutions are still possible. It seems that accreditation is a big challenge for the companies of tomorrow.
