ISO stands for International Standardisation Organisation. The role of this organisation is to harmonise the various standardisation bodies around the world and ensure that seamless standards exist throughout. Which ISO certification is best? There are various ‘management systems’ issued by the ISO, including ISO 9001 (Quality), ISO 14001 (Environment), ISO 45001 (Health & Safety), and ISO 27001 (Information Security). Evidently, each management system caters for different needs, therefore the best ISO certification depends on your business’ needs. That said, ISO 9001 is the foundation of all other management systems and the best one to start with. How do I get ISO certified? To get ISO certified, you will need to have a management system in place, conduct an internal audit and a management review meeting. Subsequently, you will need to speak with a certification body who will conduct a stage 1 audit, meaning a desk audit to evaluate that the required documentation is in place. This is followed by a stage 2 audit, an audit at your offices which is similar to what happens during an internal audit. How long is ISO certification valid for? After successfully passing through an external audit, you will be granted an ISO certificate and this is typically valid for 3 years. Once it expires, this will need to be renewed and replaced with the newest version of the standard. Who provides ISO certification in Malta? Only accredited certification bodies can provide ISO certification. Companies seeking to get ISO 9001 certification in Malta have quite a few options of local and international certification bodies. The various options all have their pros and cons and Luke can explain the choices available and ensure that you make the right choice for your business.
