Interperm Healthcare is accredited to ISO 9001 standard which is defined as the international standard that specifies requirements for a quality management system (QMS). Organisations use the standard to demonstrate the ability to consistently provide products and services that meet customer and regulatory requirements. It is the most popular standard in the ISO 9000 series and the only standard in the series to which organisations can certify.

ISO 9001 was first published in 1987 by the International Organisation for Standardisation (ISO), an international agency composed of the national standards bodies of more than 160 countries. The current version of ISO 9001 was released in September 2015.

ISO 9001:2015 applies to any organisation, regardless of size or industry. More than one million organisations from more than 160 countries have applied the ISO 9001 standard requirements to their quality management systems.

Organisations of all types and sizes find that using the ISO 9001 standard helps them:

  • Organise processes
  • Improve the efficiency of processes
  • Continually improve

All organisations that use ISO 9001 are encouraged to transition to ISO 9001:2015 as soon as possible. This includes not only organisations that are certified to ISO 9001:2008, but also any organisations involved in training or certifying others.

As of September 14, 2018 organisations that are currently registered to ISO 9001:2008 should have transitioned to the 2015 standard.
