Quality Management Systems

ISO  9001: 2015 is an internationally recognized standard for Quality Management Systems (QMS). It sets out the requirements that organizations need to follow to demonstrate their ability to consistently provide products and services that meet customer and regulatory requirements. ISO 9001: 2015 provides a comprehensive framework for organizations to develop and implement a QMS that helps them to improve their performance and achieve their quality goals.
