Quality Management System
ISO 9001 sets out the criteria for a quality management system and is the only standard in the family that can be certified to. ISO 9001 forms the foundation and/or a prime example for additional standards across multiple industries around the globe.
For organizations asking how to improve the quality of their products and services and consistently meet their customers’ expectations, ISO 9001 is the most common answer.

2. Responsibilities of management an leadership
3. Management of resources, including internal human resources and external resources such supplies and interested parties
4. Product and Service realization, including the steps from design & development to post delivery
5. Measurement, analysis, and improvement of the QMS through activities like internal audits and corrective and preventive action
