ISO 9001 Certification Quality Management Systems
Having an ISO9001 certified Quality Management System gives your customers the reassurance that you will be able to meet their needs and expectations and comply with all relevant requirements.
This is becoming increasingly essential for businesses of all sizes and across all industries throughout Australia.
ISO 9001 Certification is the single most recognised standard for Quality Management Systems in the world. The ISO 9001 Standard has been regularly revised since 1987 and has become an essential part of the pre-qualification and tender processes today. Many organisations and Government Departments require Certification to this Standard by a JAS-ANZ accredited Certification Body (such as ATLAS Certification) to ensure their suppliers and contractors have a reliable and independently verified Quality Management System in place.
What is ISO 9001:2015?
ISO Standards, including ISO 9001:2015 (AS/NZS/ISO 9001:2016), is the most recognised standard that has been developed to demonstrate an organisation has processes in place to ensure consistent and compliant outcomes. The ISO9001 Standard can be used across all industries and gives organisations complete freedom to make their own choices, provided that certain considerations have been made and relevant risks have been assessed.
ISO 9001 Certification provides confidence to stakeholders that a business is able to meet all relevant requirements and continually improves customer satisfaction. The standards also drive continual improvement of processes, by setting clear objectives, measuring and analysing results and identifying weaknesses and opportunities for improvement.
Whilst ISO 9001 Certifications are universally recognised and often specified as a requirement for pre-qualification or tendering, businesses across Australia and New Zealand do not only experience benefits from increased commercial opportunities but also identify ways to improve their processes and save significantly on costs and the reduction of wastage.

We Provide ISO 9001 Certificate with JAS-ANZ Accreditation
Our team of auditors is made up of highly skilled professionals with a thorough understanding of what it means to run a business. Our focus is on your business and your systems and reviewing its alignment with the relevant requirements, not on looking for non-compliances or on ‘ticking boxes’..
Our processes and the competence of our Auditors are regularly reviewed by JAS-ANZ, the Government appointed body tasked with safeguarding and protecting the professionalism, integrity and impartiality of ISO Certifications in Australia and New Zealand. ATLAS Certification has been accredited by JAS-ANZ, ensuring global recognition of any ISO-certificate issued by us.
The essence of ISO 9001 requirements is NOT updating policies and developing procedures. It is about understanding your own business. Determining what you want to achieve or have to comply with; developing systems that enable you to achieve the results you want; monitoring and analysing your performance and making changes where results are not what you wanted or when other opportunities for improvement are identified.
Our role as your Certification Body is simply to verify that that structure is in place, enabling you to achieve intended results and continue to improve your processes and ultimately your business results.
Working with the team at ATLAS Certification will deliver more than just your ISO 9001 Certification – it will improve your business operations, enhance customer satisfaction and open doors to new opportunities.

How to Achieve this Certification
The key to the successful implementation of a compliant Quality Management System to this standard always comes down to understanding these underlying principles of ISO 9001. Once the understanding is there, the actual requirements of the Standard are far less daunting and actually make a lot of sense.
A good Certification Body is much more than an Auditor who comes to do the Audit. At ATLAS Certification we understand small and medium businesses better than anyone. We understand the challenges and we can apply flexibility in our approach to best suit your needs and circumstances.
Most importantly, it is critical to select a Certification Body that understands that ‘one size fits all’ has no place in Certification Audits. Your QMS should be tailored and customised to your needs, to ensure it is a useful tool that adds value to your organisation and your processes.
