What does ISO do for a company?

Experts of the SMK STANDART company suggest that those looking to begin the ISO accreditation process start by examining existing processes and procedures within their companies. You will do next stages for successful ISO certification.

1)       Perform a cost benefit analysis. If you are going to commit to ISO certification, you should first analyze the added cost of doing business — not the certification process, but any additional overhead costs that you will face to follow ISO standards. Likewise, research the companies or markets that will do business with you because you have ISO certification. Get a feel for how much your business will increase if you have certification. The idea is to increase your sales so that ISO-certified products won't cost more to your customers, especially your existing customers.

2)       Involve your staff. ISO certification is a team effort, not just upfront but ongoing. Make certain that they understand the importance of the project, including the cost involved. If they are not supportive, it could sabotage your project or prolong it unnecessarily.

3)       Hire or appoint a QA specialist. Depending on your business, it could be a full-time or long-term part-time position, but will most likely be a full-time position from the beginning.

4)       Document. If you do not have your policies and procedures documented, start now. You can start with a single consultation on what is needed, but there is no need to have a consultant sitting around accruing fees while you document from scratch.

5)       Be aware of your audience. Write your procedures so that a nonemployee — someone unfamiliar with your premises, machinery or suppliers — could easily use them to conduct operations.

6)       Select a certifying organization such as SMK STANDART. Research the organization both within your industry and within the industry with which you do business. If the organization does not have a good reputation, it may reflect badly on your business.

7)       Don't scrimp on training. Your staff must not only implement and maintain your processes but also train all future workers on your ISO-standard processes.

Most companies resort to certification for solving specific business tasks. For example, the presence of the certificate allows the company labeling appropriately its production (this fact enhances consumer confidence) and it is an essential condition of winning the tender or contracting with the partner members of the Custom Union.
