The ISO9001:2008 standard is based on the eight-year practice of approximately 1 million ISO9001-certified organizations in 170 countries around the world, which clearly and clearly express the requirements of ISO9001:2000 and enhance compatibility with ISO14001:2004.
The ISO 9000 family of standards is a series of standards on quality management and quality assurance that are universally issued by the International Organization for Standardization (ISO) in 1987. ISO9001 quality system certification refers to the third party (certification body) to audit, evaluate and register the quality system of the enterprise. Its purpose is to prove that the quality system of the enterprise conforms to the ISO9001 standard through auditing, evaluation and post-supervision. All activities that are awarded a certificate of competency and are registered.
1. Strengthen quality management, improve corporate efficiency; enhance customer confidence and expand market share
The certification bodies responsible for ISO9000 quality system certification are authoritative organizations accredited by national accreditation bodies, and the audit of the company's quality system is very strict. In this way, for the internal enterprise, quality management can be carried out in accordance with the internationally standardized quality system that has been strictly audited, truly meeting the requirements of legalization and scientificization, greatly improving work efficiency and product qualification rate, and rapidly improving the economic benefits of the enterprise. Social benefits. For the outside of the enterprise, when the customer knows that the supplier is managed according to international standards, has obtained the ISO9000 quality system certification certificate, and has strict audit and regular supervision by the certification body, it can be sure that the company can stably produce qualified products and even The trustworthy enterprise of excellent products can safely conclude a supply and sales contract with the enterprise and expand the market share of the enterprise. It can be said that in both cases, it has received immediate results.
2. Obtained a “passport” for international trade and eliminated international trade barriers
In order to protect their own interests, many countries have set up various trade barriers, including tariff barriers and non-tariff barriers. Among them, non-tariff barriers are mainly technical barriers, and technical barriers are mainly barriers to product quality certification and ISO9000 quality system certification. In particular, in the "World Trade Organization", member states have excluded tariff barriers from each other and can only set technical barriers. Therefore, obtaining certification is the main way to eliminate trade barriers. (After China's accession to the WTO, it has lost the strict boundary between domestic trade and international trade. All trades may encounter the above technical barriers, which should be highly valued by the business community and prevented early.)
3. Save the energy and expense of the second party review
In modern trade practice, second-party auditing has long been a practice, and it has gradually found that it has many drawbacks: one supplier usually supplies a lot of demanders, and the second party audit will undoubtedly bring heavy burden to the supplier. On the other hand, the demand side also has to pay a considerable fee, while also considering the experience and level of the dispatch or hire of personnel. Otherwise, it costs too much to achieve the intended purpose. Only ISO9000 certification can rule out such drawbacks. Since the first-party manufacturing enterprise has applied for the third-party ISO9000 certification and obtained the certification certificate, many second parties do not need to review the first party. In this way, you can save a lot of energy or expense for both the first party and the second party. In addition, if the company obtains the ISO9000 certification and then applies for UL, CE and other product quality certifications, it can also exempt the certification body from the repeated certification of the company's quality assurance system.
4. Always invincible in product quality competition
The means of international trade competition are mainly price competition and quality competition. Because the method of low-cost sales not only makes profits sharply reduced, but if it constitutes dumping, it will also be subject to trade sanctions. Therefore, the means of price competition is increasingly undesirable. Since the 1970s, quality competition has become the main means of international trade competition. Many countries have made improving the quality requirements of imported goods as an important measure to limit trade protectionism. The implementation of ISO9000 international standardization quality management can stably improve product quality and enable enterprises to remain invincible in product quality competition.
5. Effectively avoid product liability
In the practice of implementing the product quality law in various countries, as the complaints about product quality become more and more frequent, the causes of accidents become more and more complicated, and the accountability is becoming more and more strict. Especially in recent years, developed countries have turned the original "fault liability" into a "strict liability" law, and the safety requirements for manufacturers have increased a lot. For example, when a worker is injured in operating a machine tool, according to the “strict liability” law, the court not only depends on the quality of the machine tool failure, but also whether it has safety devices or not. Devices, etc. The court may determine that the machine tool is defective according to any of the above problems, and the factory is liable to compensate for the consequences. However, according to the National Product Liability Law, if the factory can provide the ISO9000 quality system certification, it can be exempted from compensation. Otherwise, it will be defeated and subject to heavy punishment. (With the improvement of the rule of law in China, the business community should attach great importance to the "Product Liability Law" and prevent it as soon as possible.)
6. Conducive to international economic cooperation and technical exchanges
In accordance with the practice of international economic cooperation and technical exchanges, both parties must have a common language, a unified understanding and a common norm in the quality of products (including services) in order to cooperate and communicate. The ISO9000 quality system certification provides such trust and facilitates the rapid agreement between the two parties.
