ISO 9001 is the world’s most popular quality management system standard which is being widely used by organizations across the world. Organizations get ISO 9001 certified through a formal registration process. Two bodies namely the Certification body and the Accreditation bodies are involved in the registration process. Certification body is the one who will conduct the audit on the organization and issue the ISO 9001 certificate to the organization. Accreditation body is the one with whom the certification body is registered. The logo of the accreditation body will be stamped on the ISO 9001 certificate of the organization, along with the logo of the certification body. In essence, organizations desirous of getting certified need to approach the certification body. The organization needs to verify that if the certification body has been accredited for the ISO 9001 standard, in the organization’s area of operation. Examples of areas of operation are construction, automobile manufacturing, and software development.
