The ISO 9001 Quality Management System certificate confirms the company's compliance with international standards in the field of quality for organizing production processes. The document has a validity period of 3 years and is required when obtaining certificates of compliance for vehicle components, declaration of compliance, WMI certificates, and other documents.
While the ISO 9001 Quality Management System (QMS) is a voluntary document and is not mandatory in all cases of product certification, it is recommended as an extra layer of assurance regarding the superior quality of the manufactured goods, along with test reports and technical documentation.VIEW SAMPLE OF ISO 9001 CERTIFICATE
The cost and timeline for obtaining the certificate are influenced by the company's size, the quantity, and the quality of its production processes. For instance, a company can independently prepare for ISO 9001 certification and submit an application for document processing. In this case, the process may take several days. However, when starting from scratch, more time might be needed to align internal processes with international standards.
