ISO compliance ensures that a company, its operations and its products are aligned with the highest international standards of quality.
ISO stands for The International Organisation for Standardisation. This is an international body made up of several representatives from various standards organisations across the world.
Their main purpose is to set universal standards for worldwide propriety, industrial and commercial industries.
ISO is a non-governmental organisation which aims to promote positive relations between the public and private sectors in all relevant industries.
Ultimately, ISO standards ensure the safety of workers, consumers as well as the environment throughout every process and with every product.
Companies who are compliant with ISO standards can bring major benefits to their clients as these carefully designed standards facilitate optimal work operations, functions and production.
In order for companies to remain compliant with ISO standards, it’s important that they stay up to date and informed of new additions, adjustments and revisions of the standards related to their particular industry.
ISO compliance is not mandatory across the board. However, in the sectors related to national health, safety and environmental practices, these standards are compulsory and legally binding.
Although compliance is not compulsory in certain fields, obtaining relevant ISO certification opens up a myriad of benefits and opportunities which can all contribute to the success of a company.
For example, international trade with leading companies becomes possible as a universal level of quality in procedures and products is assured.
Furthermore, customers are guaranteed a product that is in line with international regulatory standards, ensuring ultimate customer satisfaction and in turn, brand loyalty.
With the rapid change of technology, the challenges faced by industries change at the same rate. Therefore, new advancements need to be made to improve processes and methods and remain current.
Therefore, all ISO standards are reviewed by a panel of industry experts and forward-thinkers every 5 years if required.
For a company to continue providing the best product and service, it’s imperative that the reviewed standards are integrated with its current processes as soon as possible.
In areas where international standards have not yet been developed, there are local standards developed and governed by the South African Bureau of Standards which is a leader in quality assurance in industries across the continent.
South Africa joined ISO as one of the founding members of the organisation in 1946 and continues to assist with the development and improvement of international standards.
