ISO 9001 for Quality Management Systems (QMS)

ISO 9001 for Quality Management Systems (QMS) was developed by the International Organisation for Standardisation (ISO). It is internationally recognised to help businesses from any industry or sector demonstrate a commitment to quality and excellence in customer service.

Being certified means that your company’s Quality Management System (QMS) satisfies the requirements of the ISO 9001 standard. There are a number of benefits to ISO 9001 including the fact that a compliant QMS will help your business to improve the delivery of customer value in your products and services.

How ISO 9001 can benefit your business

Some of the benefits that your business can gain by having ISO 9001 include:

  • Better relationships – A successful business maintains productive relationships with customers, staff, suppliers, intermediaries, partners and other stakeholders
  • Planning and managing these relationships will help to ensure long-term success
  • Decision making – Decision-making which is supported by data and analysis. Following this best practice reduces the risk and uncertainty when making decisions
  • Process planning – ISO 9001 helps your business to function as a cohesive unit. When staff understand these processes and how they work, this increases efficiency
  • Staff engagement – By engaging staff and providing them with the right skills and competencies to do their jobs, the delivery of customer value will be ensured, and after all your own staff can be the biggest advocates for your business and brand
  • Customer focus – Delivering quality management under ISO 9001 means meeting your customer’s requirements. As customer retention is as important as customer acquisition, ISO 9001 can help you in seeking continual improvement
  • Leadership – Through strong leadership and corporate governance all staff understand what is expected of them and ISO 9001 can help in charting this process.

BBA Associate Consultants

We are aware that not all companies have access to an internal consultant, such as a quality manager, and this is where the BBA’s Associate Consultant Scheme will be of benefit.

The BBA Associate Consultant Scheme (ACS) assists organisations looking to become certified in any of ISO 9001, ISO 14001, ISO 45001 and OHSAS 18001.

For a company to become certified for any of the above-mentioned standards, they may need to work with a professional consultant to guide them through the individual requirements and process before applying for a Management System Certification with the BBA.

Finding a BBA Associate Consultant is simple. Simply email us with your company details and location, and provide details of which management system you are looking to be certified in.


Use of one of the BBA Associate Consultants does not imply that the process of Management System Certification will be simpler, easier, faster or less expensive. The list of Associate Consultants is provided for your convenience. It is important that you consider all the available consultants and choose the most appropriate consultant for your organisation’s needs. The BBA does not endorse the competence or performance of the consultants. If you wish to provide feedback on the Associate Consultant Scheme (ACS) please contact us.
