ISO 9001 Quality Management Systems


Karza provides quality management system (ISO9001) development, implementation, auditing and review services to organisations of all sizes.


ISO 9001 was first published in 1987 by the International Organization for Standardization (ISO) as an international standard which specified the uniform requirements for a quality management system (QMS). Today, the ISO 9001:2015 standard is considered the bare basic QMS structure for the modern business.

At Karza we consider a properly implemented and maintained ISO9001 structured QMS should be a significant business tool for an organisation; helping to drive value and growth, improve performance and reduce product and service risks.

However, all organisations need to consider the ISO9001 standard (and any certified management systems) with open eyes. Any management system is only functional (and effective) when an organisation is committed to process implementation, maintenance and continually improvement. Often organisations engage a supplier, service provider or contractor naively believing an ISO9001 'certification' or 'accreditation' means they can ignore implementing their own contractor and supplier assessment and monitoring programmes. Too often such an approach to risk management leaves a business dangerously exposed to the failures and flaws of a third party.


Do you want your products or services to meet a clearly defined level of quality; to be safe; reliable; meet customer and stakeholder expectations; continuously improve over time; and comply with the law and contractual obligations? Then Karza can help.
