CHOOSING A QUALITY MANAGEMENT SYSTEM IS THE RIGHT STRATEGY FOR EVERY COMPANY: FROM ISO 9001 TO ISO 13485 CERTIFICATION

Choosing a Quality Management System is the right strategy for every company: from ISO 9001 to ISO 13485 certification

The adoption of a Quality Management System (such as ISO 9001), its application and the resulting certification make it a specific strategic choice for a company to pursue its growth objectives and improvements.

The introduction of standards for the Quality Management System has provided to companies an instrument that allows them to ensure that their processes meet customer requirements and needs and, as a consequence, refine products and services and improve internal and external resources with economic benefits for the company.

The introduction of ISO 9001 certification has brought further benefits in terms of awareness, adherence to daily management practices and customer satisfaction.
The experience achieved in the product certification and system certification allows Istituto Masini to offer a global service that includes both certification and collaboration in building a customer-orientated system through refinement of the product and of the processes linked to it.
