Below are the important four processes to obtain an ISO certificate to a company.
- Training that given in ISO standard: ISO standard has to be incorporated into the workflow of the organization, for this, the ISO standard has to be bought from the International Standard organization and with that standard as the basis, all the employees should be trained in the prescribed standard.
- Application: Once when everything in the company is on par with the standards prescribed by ISO, an application can be posted for certification either online or offline.
- Assessment: Once the application is posted for accreditation of ISO9001, an auditor audits the entire company, the workflow, the quality management policy, and the actual practice of that policy. Based on the audit the International Standard organization asses whether a company is deserving of ISO certificate or not.
- Certification: After the assessment is over and the auditor clears the company to be worthy of the certificate then it will be decided that the company will be accredited with ISO certificate that the company can use it in its logo.
The validity of the ISO certificate is for 3 years from the date of registration for the certificate and the renewal is very simple with a small reassessment of the organizational structure in par with the current ISO standards and some quality checks.
These are the processes for ISO certification in India. Though there are different ISO certifications as mentioned above and the standards different for each, the process remains the same.
