Quality Management Systems

Set up a new ISO 9001 QMS, transition to 2015 or review your existing system.

ISO 9001 Quality Management Systems (QMS)

We believe quality and sustainability go hand in hand. A Quality Management System (QMS) reduces the risk of defects, and therefore waste, and if you are providing high quality products that your customers want there is less chance of wasting resources. A QMS comprises documents, procedures and other tools to ensure the quality of your products and services.

ISO 9001 is the leading ISO certification, held by over one million organisations worldwide. It maps out a framework that a company or organisation can follow to set up an effective quality management system and can be used by any organisation, regardless of activities or sector.

Totem Sustainability will look at your systems and processes and help you align them with the requirements of ISO 9001. Totem Sustainability can then help you arrange ISO 9001 certification and support you with your ongoing management and audit programme.
