  • Quality management system (QMS) standards establish a framework for how a business manages its key processes. They can help whether your business offers products or services and regardless of your size or industry. They can also help new businesses start off on the right foot by ensuring processes meet recognised standards, clarifying business objectives and avoiding expensive mistakes.
  • Analyse your business by breaking it down into key areas. These will tend to be those that are crucial to customer satisfaction. Senior staff should determine the needs of the business and design the system around these. Plan your approach by deciding which resources you need and discussing the effectiveness of existing processes with staff. Decide if new processes are necessary and tell staff about them - provide training if necessary. Check that the processes are working by appointing someone to be responsible for the system and ensuring proper procedures are followed. Targets need to be set for how each process contributes to the success of business goals. Revise processes where necessary and continue to review them regularly.
  • Management Responsibility: Who's responsible  for making it happen - everybody, your personnel know exactly what their  responsibilities are and where they fit in the organization. Customers' Requirements: We need to be confident that your  customers' requirements and expectations are fully understood, and that you have  the capability to satisfy them. Having an agreed, documented record of this will  help to prevent misunderstandings. Control Systems: How do you make sure that a consistent  level of product or services is delivered? You have controls. Clear, concise,  written procedures are developed with the appropriate employees.
  • Certification is the official recognition by an accredited body that your business has achieved a particular standard, for example an ISO 9000. You can choose to implement a quality management system without seeking certification. However, you might decide that ISO 9001:2000 certification is necessary because: your customers want it - many large companies and public sector organisations require suppliers to be certified it can boost your reputation and make you more attractive to prospective customers you want an external audit of your quality system.
  • Although the costs of implementing a quality management system (QMS) may be off-putting, you should weigh them carefully against the potential savings and improvements your business could make and the additional business you could win. Implementing a QMS will also cost time. Another cost will be the design of your system.
