ISO 9001 for quality management provides you and your company with clear definitions of processes, values, ongoing monitoring and evaluation, so that the organization has a recognized and basic management tool.
Such organizations may participate in one or more phases of the medical device life cycle, including the development, production, storage and distribution, installation or service of a medical device, as well as the development or provision of related activities (eg technical support).
This international standard can also be used by suppliers or external parties who supply products, incl. services related to the quality management system, to such organizations.
By using ISO 14001, your work with sustainability, circular economy and the UN's world goals can be concretized and targeted and contribute to achieving the results that you and your company have set for yourself.
You get the opportunity to focus on the most important environmental conditions in the company, ensure a reduction of the environmental impact, and that there are ongoing environmental improvements.
The part of the standard that deals with food safety is based on HACCP principles, which form the basis of the statutory self-monitoring program.
The internationally recognized standard ISO 26000 and the Danish DS 49001 for corporate social responsibility provide you and your organization with a systematic basis for working with corporate social responsibility.
ISO 27001 sets out, among other things, requirements for risk management, documentation of processes and the distribution of roles and responsibility for information security.
The purpose of ISO / IEC 27001 is to achieve effective information security management that suits a company's special needs, as well as to ensure that this efficiency is maintained through a process for continuous improvement.
This means that information security is constantly updated so that the company is able to handle the challenges of a business world under constant change.
It provides a holistic and common approach and is not industry or sector specific.
This standard can be applied throughout the organization; at any activity, internally and externally at all levels.
The requirements and guidelines of the standard thus give you a tool to put your work with work environment in a system and ensure that you continuously monitor your work environment and evaluate and improve your efforts.
By introducing the management system for work environment ISO 45001, you and your company work in a structured way with learning in the field of work environment.
For load-bearing structures of steel or aluminum, the harmonized standard SS-EN 1090 applies.
If your company manufactures structural building components of steel or aluminum, it is therefore likely that you are covered by these requirements and must act accordingly.
The requirements are set, as these steel components or building structures are defined as safety-critical.
Choose the right advisor and the right certifying body
Our starting point as system builders is that you have to build a system that suits the company and that is neither bigger nor more hassle than necessary. It should make sense to follow the system, and it should preferably also be an advantage.
Or in other words: When you now "have to" invest in and implement a certified management system due to requirements from customers and partners, you can just as well ensure that you can use it for something useful in the company - useful in relation to the company's real needs, challenges and opportunities.
Most people who build systems go the opposite way: The system is built according to the relevant standard, then the company has to adapt. It is our experience that it will never work well and that it almost always leads to the system not being used properly in practice.
