How Fusion Weld Keeps Up With AS-NZS ISO 9001:2008 Standard

December 14, 2022

The International Organization for Standardization initially released the ISO 9001:2008 standard for quality management systems in 1987. This standard was developed to ensure that enterprises satisfy all the requirements their customers and other stakeholders have set out. It is not a standard that is particular to either an industry or a product. Certification against ISO 9001 is open to all sizes and types of businesses and organisations.

Companies that manufacture goods or provide services like Fusion-Weld are eligible to use this standard. This standard gives all parties engaged in accredited enterprises the peace of mind that they receive excellent products and services.

Regarding increasing one's competitiveness and ease of doing business in international markets, ISO 9001 is often regarded as an essential component.

Requirements for a Quality Management System

An organisation that wishes to demonstrate its ability to consistently provide a product that satisfies customer and applicable statutory and regulatory requirements and that wishes to enhance customer satisfaction through the effective application of the system, including processes for continual improvement of the system and the assurance of conformity to customer and applicable statutory and regulatory requirements, must implement a quality management system that conforms to the requirements that are specified in ISO 9001:2008. This standard was published in 2008 and specifies the requirements for such a system.

Every one of ISO 9001:2008's prerequisites is general and is designed to be relevant to any business, irrespective of their nature, size, services, or goods. This might be considered for exclusion if any of the requirements of ISO 9001:2008 cannot be applied to a particular business because of the nature of the product that it produces.

When exclusions are made, claims of conformity to ISO 9001:2008 are not acceptable unless these exclusions are limited to the requirements contained within Clause 7, and such exclusions do not affect the organisation's ability, or responsibility, to provide a product that satisfies customer and applicable statutory and regulatory requirements.

Process Approach

This international standard encourages the use of a process approach in the process of developing, implementing, and improving the effectiveness of a quality management system. This goal is to improve customer satisfaction by more effectively meeting the requirements that customers have specified.

For an organisation to perform its functions efficiently, it must first identify and then manage a large number of interconnected operations. A process may be thought of as an action or collection of activities that make use of resources and are controlled in such a way as to permit the transformation of inputs into outputs. The results of one procedure frequently serve as the starting point for the subsequent one. The use of a system of processes inside an organisation and the identification and management of the interactions between these processes can be referred to as the "process approach." This method is intended to create the desired result by employing the processes' management.

The continual control that the process approach gives over the connectivity between the various processes that make up the system of processes and their combination and interaction is one of the ways in which the process method may be advantageous. When incorporated into a quality management system, such an approach places emphasis on the significance of comprehending and satisfying requirements, the requirement to think of processes in terms of the value they add, the acquisition of results that assess the efficiency and performance of processes, and the ongoing enhancement of processes based on objective measurement.
