ISO 55001 is one of the leading Asset Management Systems (AMS) that aims to provide organisations with a clear set of requirements to more effectively manage their resources. You can think of it as a ‘health check’ for your organisation’s finances, which will help manage both the physical and intangible assets under your management.
Achieving certification to ISO 27001 addresses your information security risks, and kick-starts a cycle of continual improvement when it comes to digital threats and information security management. Small and medium-sized businesses are often targeted by cyber criminals due to the recognition that information security is not a priority for them. Getting certified to ISO 27001 shows your customers that their confidential data will remain exactly that as they do business with you.
The ISO 9000 family of standards – ISO 9001 2015 Quality Management System, in particular – have been designed to provide organizations with a framework of continual improvement that aims to ensure customer satisfaction, with a processed approach to applying the quality management principles specific to your business operations. Organizations that are ISO 9001 certified are able to display evidence of their strategic approach to ensuring customer satisfaction and a consistently high level of quality products and services.
ISO 14001 – Environmental Management System – looks at how your organisation can minimise its impact on the natural environment in which it operates, and asks you to analyse areas that you can encourage sustainability in your supply chain and look for new ways of operating that optimise your environmental management strategies. Environmental considerations are becoming more topical amongst the buying public, and increasingly important to meet regulatory requirements.
Certification to ISO 45001 – Occupational Health and Safety – ensures that your organisation is making a clear effort to increase its occupational health and safety obligations, keeping your staff and external stakeholders safe. This, in a number of industries, is a legal requirement that displays to regulators that you’re actively meeting industry best practices for the standard including worker-related safety concerns and any prevalent risks in your operations or supply chain.
