Why You Should Work with an ISO Certified Company

Posted on Friday Oct 23, 2020 at 03:39PM  

An ISO certified company meets a series of standards outlined by the International Organization for Standardization (ISO)

ISO certifications are valuable to industries like energy management, medical devices, manufacturing, and many others, as they help us maintain consistency across industries and markets. ISO certificates set these common standards for quality and safety.

What is an ISO Certificate?

An ISO certificate signifies that a company’s management systems, manufacturing processes, and/or documentation procedures comply with ISO’s standardized quality assurance requirements. When a company possesses ISO certifications, you can be confident it will deliver the kind of safe, effective, and high-quality processes you need.

What is an ISO Certified Company?

An ISO certified company holds an ISO certificate verifying that its manufacturing processes or services meet the requirements set forth by ISO. 

As an independent and non-governmental international organization, ISO brings experts across industries together to develop a set of consensus-based and market-relevant standards that companies worldwide can follow. This means that any ISO certified company has proven itself to be in alignment with the international standards the ISO has established.

Two of the most critical ISO certifications in the energy industry, for example, are as follows:

ISO 9001 Certification Requirements

If an organization is looking to improve its products or services, it should look into the ISO 9001 certification requirements. This ISO certificate is designed to address various quality management areas and can be used by any organization regardless of size, industry, or location. The ISO 9001 certification requirements primarily focus on seven areas:

  • Customer focus
  • Leadership
  • Engagement of people
  • Process approach
  • Improvement
  • Evidence-based decision making
  • Relationship management

As an ISO 9001 certified company, Veris Industries is committed to providing a superior level of service and products that are designed to meet and exceed our customers’ expectations.

ISO 14001 Certification Requirements

The ISO 14000 certification family is built around the need to standardize the way companies and organizations interact with the environment. The ISO 14001 certificate is specifically focused on setting standards for environmental management systems (EMS) and is the most widely used EMS standard in the world.

The basis for the ISO 14001 certification requirements is the Plan-Do-Check-Act model. This means that an ISO certified company must fulfill these four steps:

  • Plan: Establish the environmental objectives and processes necessary to deliver results that are in accordance with the organization’s overall environmental policy.
  • Do: Implement the planned processes.
  • Check: Monitor and measure the processes to confirm their alignment with the company’s environmental policy.
  • Act: Take action to improve continually.

You Should Work with an ISO Certified Company

When it comes to the energy industry, the importance of ISO certification cannot be overstated. Veris Industries is proud to be an ISO certified company with ISO 9001 and ISO 14001 certificates. We’re committed to maintaining the business practices and services that earned us those ISO certifications.

If you’re looking to work with a company, especially one that works with energy management systems, take some time to look into their ISO certifications, as they can go a long way toward helping you identify the best companies to work with.
