Quality Management Systems (QMS) – ISO 9001:2015

Obsequentia is an Australian owned quality certifying body that operates in every Australian state and territory. We aim to make the quality certification process as hassle free as possible. Quality Management Systems (QMS) – ISO 9001 is an internationally recognized standard for the quality management of businesses. ISO 9001 is the world’s most recognized business management standard and its core objective is to reduce risk, improve customer satisfaction, motivate staff and promote a culture within the organisation of continual improvement i.e. things are done right the first time! ISO 9001 is very versatile and can be implemented in all industries – from manufacturers and service companies, to local or even global companies.The key principles of ISO 9001 include:

  • Customer focus
  • Leadership
  • Involvement of people
  • Process approach
  • Systems approach to management
  • Continual improvement
  • Factual approach to decision making
  • Mutually beneficial supplier relationship.

Stages involved in quality certification are outlined below:

  • staff will work with the client to ensure accurate information is collated for the preparation of a proposal
  • the completion of a gap analysis. The gap analysis compares the organisation's level of compliance against ISO 9001
  • the certification audit further assesses the level of implementation of ISO 9001. At the successful conclusion of the certification process Obsequentia provides clients with a certificate that endorses the client's QMS.
  • surveillance audits are conducted at least once a year to ensure the ongoing maintenance of the QMS.

At the end of any quality certification audit clients are provided with a comprehensive audit report - not just a "tick sheet". This ensures that clients are well informed of all audit outcomes.
