Your Best Choice for ISO 9001:2015 Gap Assessment, Certification, and Internal Audit Services

When it comes to the world of ISO standards, WMEP has you covered. We can perform an assessment of your current status to the requirements of the standard (Gap Assessment), work with your team to the extent you require to achieve certification
(ISO Implementation).

We can also be your source to conduct an internal audit of your system (Internal Audit Service).

WMEP personnel can work either as a coach or as an active participant in implementing your system.

ISO 9001: 2015 responds to current trends, is compatible with other management systems such as ISO 14001, and keeps the standard relevant for the marketplace.

Summary of the key changes in the 2015 standard:

  • Greater emphasis on building a management system suited to each organization’s particular needs
  • Top management of an organization will be involved and accountable, aligning quality with wider business strategy
  • Risk-based thinking throughout the standard makes the whole management system a preventive tool and encourages continuous improvement
  • Less prescriptive requirements for documentation, allowing the organization to decide what documented information it needs and what format it should be in
  • Alignment with other key management system standards through the use of a common structure and core text

The benefits of ISO certification go well beyond improved quality. Designed for small & mid-sized manufacturers, typical results include $300,000 to $10 million in sales increases, improved on-time delivery, reduced defects and fewer product returns.

This is a business system that addresses quality – not a quality system. What results is a more focused and efficient business operation that delivers improved results for the company, for employees and customers.

Working with the WMEP guarantees that ISO-9001: 2015 certification can be much more than a “one-and-done” project. Our specialists will take the time to learn your goals and understand your organization and often finding further avenues for your business growth, market expansion and human capital solutions.
