specifies requirements for a quality management system when an organization:
a) needs to demonstrate its ability to consistently provide products and services that meet customer and applicable statutory and regulatory requirements, and
b) aims to enhance customer satisfaction through the effective application of the system, including processes for improvement of the system and the assurance of conformity to customer and applicable statutory and regulatory requirements.
All the requirements of ISO 9001:2015 are generic and are intended to be applicable to any organization, regardless of its type or size, or the products and services it provides.
ISO 14001 is the international standard that specifies requirements for an effective environmental management system (EMS). It provides a framework that an organization can follow, rather than establishing environmental performance requirements.
Part of the ISO 14000 family of standards on environmental management, ISO 14001 is a voluntary standard that organizations can certify to. Integrating it with other management systems standards, most commonly ISO 9001, can further assist in accomplishing organizational goals.
The International Organization for Standardization (ISO) defines an environmental management system as “part of the management system used to manage environmental aspects, fulfill compliance obligations, and address risks and opportunities.” The framework in the ISO 14001 standard can be used within a plan-do-check-act (PDCA) approach to continuous improvement.

ISO 45001: THE STANDARD FOR THE CERTIFICATION OF OCCUPATIONALHEALTH AND SAFETY MANAGEMENT SYSTEMS
-ISO 45001 is the certification standard for Occupational Health and Safety Management Systems. The standard aims to identify work-related risks to employees such as illness, injury, accidents and to avoid them with the help of preventative measures.
-ISO 45001 is applicable for companies and organizations of all sizes and industries. Therefore, even small organizations can benefit from the standard. An ISO 45001 Management System has the same High Level Structure as ISO 9001 (Quality Management) and ISO 14001 (Environmental Management) which ensures its suitability as part of an integrated management system.
-ADVANTAGES OF THE STANDARD

HOW IT WORKS (THE CERTIFICATION PROCESS )
Together we organise an appointment for the audit. The audit duration depends on the size of your organisation. After the successful completion of the certification audit, you will receive a certificate which is valid for 3 years. To maintain your certification, annual surveillance audits are required.
The consequences of unsafe food can be serious. ISO’s food safety management standards help organizations identify and control food safety hazards, at the same time as working together with other ISO management standards, such as ISO 9001. Applicable to all types of producer, ISO 22000 provides a layer of reassurance within the global food supply chain, helping products cross borders and bringing people food that they can trust.
ISO 22000 sets out the requirements for a food safety management system and can be certified to it. It maps out what an organization needs to do to demonstrate its ability to control food safety hazards in order to ensure that food is safe. It can be used by any organization regardless of its size or position in the food chain.
