How Advance Innovation Group can help?

Advance Innovation Group has been actively involved in ISO consulting including ISO 9001:2015 consulting for over a decade for not only ISO 9001 but for ISO 14001 (Environment Management Systems), ISO 27001:2022 (Information Security Management Systems), ISO 45001 (Occupational Health and Safety Management Systems) among many more standards.

We have a systemic approach when it comes to ISO 9001:2015 consulting. Through the years we have helped countless organizations to establish Quality Management System in their organization and help them maintain it as well as maintain their QMS certification status.

First, we conduct a gap analysis which results in a gap analysis report that showcases the current status of the organization. This helps us gauge the current systems and processes of the organization as well as get to know what is currently present and what needs to be done. Based on this we devise further plans for the implementation of ISO 9001:2015.

As a next step we need input from our client, that list of employees from various departments who will undergo the training to become ‘competent’ on ISO 9001:2015 and then get them assessed.  AIG is responsible for training the team on ISO 9001:2015, as well as conducting their assessment as required by ISO.

We will also need to define the ‘Scope’ of ISO 9001:2015 implementation. Which is basically the logical boundaries of the implementation of ISO 9001:2015. Basically, it covers what are the products/services provided by the organization for its customers. The requirements mentioned in ISO 9001:2015 are generic in nature and are intended to be applicable to any organization, regardless of its type or size, or the products and services it provides. This statement implies that many of the requirements of ISO 9001:2015 will not be applicable to your organization. And that is why ISO 9001:2015, permits organizations to seek exclusions from any of these requirements if they are not applicable to their organization. Advance Innovation Group’s consultants will help your organization to identify these non-applicable clauses/requirements and help in tailoring the standards to your organization’s unique requirements.

After this, the implementation of ISO 9001:2015 needs a lot of documentation and its implementation which will again be supported by AIG’s consultants.

Once this is done, we will also conduct, internal audits for ISO 9001:2015, to identify the gaps and non-conformity with respect to ISO 9001:2015 standards & help close loop it so that your organization is ready for external audit which will finally result in an ISO 9001:2015 certificate of the organization.

What kind of organization should get themselves certified for ISO 9001:2015?

Before we understand the answer to this question, let us focus on what ISO 9001:2015 says about this in Clause 1:

All the requirements of this International Standard are generic and are intended to be applicable to any organization, regardless of its type or size, or the products and services it provides.
