ISO 9001 for Small Businesses

As many larger businesses are already certificated, it is small businesses that are generally looking towards ISO 9001 Quality Management System (QMS) certification as part of its business growth plans.

In a small business with fewer people involved, communications are more straightforward and direct.  Personnel may undertake a wide variety of tasks and decision making may even be confined to just a few people (or even one).

For a small business the process of introducing a Quality Management System is greater due to:-

  • minimal available resources
  • limited or no background in Quality Management Systems
  • difficulty in understanding and applying the standards
  • costs involved in setting up a quality management system
  • post certification system maintenance resourcing and costs
