to ISO management system standards
Organizations and companies often want to get certified to ISO’s management system standards (for example ISO 9001 or ISO 14001) although certification is not a requirement. The best reason for wanting to implement these standards is to improve the efficiency and effectiveness of company operations.
A company may decide to seek certification for many reasons, as certification may:
be a contractual or regulatory requirement
be necessary to meet customer preferences
fall within the context of a risk management programme, and
help motivate staff by setting a clear goal for the development of its management system.
