International Organization for Standardization, popularly known as ISO is the global standard setting organization. The ISO 9001 is one such popular standard used worldwide for enforcing Quality Management System or QMS.
A Quality Management System or QMS is a set of policies and procedures designed to ensure customer expectations are consistently met. Any organization seeking the ISO 9001 QMS certification will have to outline all the processes which form the QMS. After taking the ISO 9001 training, you will learn how to analyze, measure, and continuously improve quality standards across the organization.
It needs to be understood that ISO never issues certification to a company or an organization. ISO is a body that sets these International Standards across diverse business areas. There are external certification bodies who would certify your compliance to the well-established ISO standards. You need to hire one of these external certification bodies who will create a detailed certification audit and issue the desired accreditation once every compliance parameter is met. For someone looking to train on ISO concepts or take the ISO 9001 auditor training they must get in touch with a reputed institute like Koenig Solutions which has years of experience in providing training on ISO certifications
Anyone who has taken the ISO 9001 internal auditor training will tell you about the importance of a Quality Manual as one of the most important documents required for ISO certification. Apart from this manual, you also need a clearly outlined quality policy along with the objectives that you want to achieve. You will also have to maintain records in detail to help auditors ensure compliance with the documented quality policy.
If you’re in India, as per the ISO India website, following are the key stages of the ISO certification process; Application Review & Contract Review; Stage 1 & Stage 2 Audit or preliminary audits; Certification Decision; Surveillance Audit (continuous assessment); Renewal Audit; Suspension/Withdrawal/Extension/Reduction of Scope of Certification

Says our CEO-
“It is an interesting story and dates back half a century. My father started a manufacturing business in India in the 1960's for import substitute electromechanical components such as microswitches. German and Japanese goods were held in high esteem so he named his company Essen Deinki (Essen is a well known industrial town in Germany and Deinki is Japanese for electric company). His products were very good quality and the fact that they sounded German and Japanese also helped. He did quite well. In 1970s he branched out into electronic products and again looked for a German name. This time he chose Koenig, and Koenig Electronics was born. In 1990s after graduating from college I was looking for a name for my company and Koenig Solutions sounded just right. Initially we had marketed under the brand of Digital Equipment Corporation but DEC went out of business and we switched to the Koenig name. Koenig is difficult to pronounce and marketeers said it is not a good choice for a B2C brand. But it has proven lucky for us.” – Says Rohit Aggarwal (Founder and CEO - Koenig Solutions)
Yes, if you send 4 participants, we can offer an exclusive training for them which can be started from Any Date™ suitable for you.
