Common Questions About ISO Certification

ISO certification is designed to ensure the quality, safety, and efficiency of products, services, and systems across an organisation.

Certification can be a rewarding and enriching opportunity for organisations to improve their existing systems as well as implement new ideas in their business.

The ISO standards are developed by ISO (International Organization for Standardization), an independent, non-governmental, international organization.

Certification is valid for a 3-year period from the date of issue, subject to regular surveillance assessments.

  • Define your company’s ‘Why’ – We recommend watching Simon Sinek’s ‘Start With Why’ – TED Talk
  • Quarterly strategic planning and management review workshop(s)
  • Issues list: risks and opportunities, SWOT Analysis, Risk Register, and actions being taken to prevent them (who, what, when, how)
  • The part of the business that the management system applies to
  • One page business strategy
  • Dashboard of business statistics with objectives and targets, or KPI’s
  • The customer journey and clear accountabilities
  • Flowcharts of critical business process flows (marketing, sales, operations, HR, finance)
  • Key stakeholder analysis
  • Organisational chart and position descriptions
  • Training records and internal training register
  • Peer process reviews (Internal Audits)
  • Compliance obligations and how you access them e.g. legislation, standards, codes etc and how to find them
  • Operational controls – tasks required to deliver promises to customers to ensure the team works safely to improve environmental sustainability and ensure your business conducts work in a safe manner or operates without harm to the environment

When you achieve certification you will be able to demonstrate to customers and stakeholders your commitment to quality products and services, be it for the benefit of the environment, the safety of all stakeholders or for business ethics and risk management.

Some of the most common ISO certifications are ISO 9001 (Quality Management System), ISO 14001 (Environmental Management System), ISO 45001 (Occupational Health and Safety) and ISO 27001 (Information Security Management System). Best Practice Certification certifies each of these standards.

Each standard has both unique criteria as well as common criteria between ISO standards (making the implementation of multiple systems easy) that must be met in order for organisations to be certified.

ISO 9001 is an international Quality Management System certification (QMS). It is the most common certification for businesses as it demonstrates their ability to consistently provide products and services that meet customer and regulatory requirements. For more information on ISO 9001 click here.

ISO 14001 is the international standard for Environmental Management Systems (EMS). It provides a framework that organisations can follow to manage their environmental responsibilities. For more information on ISO 14001 click here.

ISO 45001 is the future replacement to OHSAS 18001 and AS/NZS 4801, and will become the international ISO standard for Occupational Health and Safety Management Systems (OHSMS). For more information on ISO 45001 click here.

ISO 27001 is the international standard for Information Security Management Systems (ISMS). ISO 27017 is a Cloud Security standard that can compliment ISO 27001, as is ISO 27018 (Code of practice for protection of personally identifiable information).

An ISMS is a framework of policies and procedures that includes all legal, physical and technical controls involved in an organisation’s information risk management processes. For more information on ISO 27001 click here.
