When undertaking construction or renovation projects, you need to ensure that the products you or your contractor use will last for many years. In this regard, it makes sense to prioritize products, services or companies that hold ISO 9001 certification if you want to put all the odds in your favour.
In this article, learn more about this standard and find out why it is important to support companies that adopt it!
What is ISO 9001?
The ISO 9001 standard was established by the International Organization for Standardization (ISO). This organization is non-governmental and independent and its members include all national standards offices around the world, including the Bureau de normalisation du Québec (BNQ). The International Electrotechnical Commission (IEC) was also involved in the development of this standard.
The ISO establishes general requirements for the various quality management systems related to the manufacture of products or the provision of services. All companies that want to have effective quality control and demonstrate to their customers that their products are subject to regulated requirements can adopt this standard.
Guaranteed quality of products manufactured by an ISO 9001 certified company
ISO 9001 certification is not mandatory for all companies. Rather, those that have this certification have voluntarily taken the necessary steps to obtain it. ISO 9001-certified companies are therefore genuinely committed to offering a quality product to their customers, since they themselves decide to adhere to this standard and implement the appropriate processes. In addition, the BNQ’s impartiality in evaluating companies is guaranteed so that all certified companies meet the same quality standards.
Standards created by industry experts
All the regulations of the BNQ standards were decided by experts in the industry covered by the standard. They consult each other to review all aspects of the standard and reach a consensus that is then verified by the BNQ to confirm that it complies with the international rules of the ISO, the World Trade Organization and the Standards Council of Canada.
