ISO 9001 certification

The certification process

The ISO Navigator™ database hyperlinks the ISO 9000 principles and the ISO 9001 requirements; and explains them in plain English with practical guidance.

Certification bodies

See the ISO Directory which lists national accreditation bodies, followed by national certification bodies. NOTE: Accreditation Bodies audit and accredit the Certification Bodies who audit and certify you.

In the UK alone, there are over 60 Certification Bodies (CB) offering accredited ISO 9001 certification services, see the United Kingdom Accreditation Service website for details UKAS.

All Certification Bodies are commercial organizations and consequently charge different fee-scales and operate on different lead-times - it is worthwhile to shop around.
