ISO, or the "International Organization for
Standardization" is an independent, non-governmental international
organization with a membership of 167 national standards bodies.
Through its members, it brings professionals together to
exchange knowledge and create voluntary, market-relevant international
standards that foster innovation and offer answers to global challenges.
ISO's Central Secretariat is located in Geneva, Switzerland.
A surge of legislation, development of standards and consumer awareness has increased the need for companies to demonstrate innovation in design, transparency and reporting for their products and packaging. Intertek’s team of sustainability experts support companies as they navigate issues of compliance, efficiency and management in their sustainability efforts.
The Office Crowd is interested in two main ISO standardswhen it comes to sustainability.
ISO 14001 sets out the structure for an environmental
management system and certifications.
It outlines a process that a company or organization can use to
establish a successful environmental management system.
It can offer support to company management, staff, and
external stakeholders that environmental impact is being measured and improved
regardless of an organization's activity or industry.
Environmental system-related requirements are provided by
ISO 14001 along with important usage instructions. The ISO 14000 family also
concentrates on certain strategies like audits, messaging, labelling, life
cycle analysis, as well as environmental issues like climate change.
ISO 9001 sets out the criteria for a quality managementsystem and is the only standard in the family that can be certified to.
Regardless of industry, every organization, no matter how
big or small, can use this standard.
In actuality, more than a million businesses and
organizations in more than 170 nations have received ISO 9001 certification.
This need is founded on several quality management
principles, such as a strong customer focus.
It also takes into account the drive and responsibility of
senior management, the use of processes, and ongoing improvement.
The quality management principles of ISO provide a more
thorough explanation of these ideas. Utilizing ISO 9001 contributes to ensuring
that customers receive dependable, high-quality goods and services, which, in
turn has a positive effect on businesses and the environment.
