ISO (the International Organization for Standardization) is a worldwide federation of national standards bodies (ISO member bodies) and ISO 9001 is one of three International Standards dealing with quality system requirements that can be used for external quality assurance purposes.
ISO 9001 is used where the organization is involved in design/development, production, and installation and servicing and is used when conformance to specified requirements is to be assured by the supplier during design, development, production, installation and servicing. This Standard is the same as BS 5750 Part 1 and EN29001.
ISO9001 certification has become a requirement for short-listing of companies providing services to many government and international bodies
