Is ISO Certification Important? Yes, Don't Be Fooled By Imitators

There is a big difference between compliance
and certification/registration.
When a business decides to obtain ISO:9001:2008 certification, they have told clients that they care about the global community and the needs of the global marketplace.

For companies that utilize CNC and EDM milling to create and manufacture products for various industries, complying with International Standards is a terrific way to build confidence in your company’s brand.

How so?

ISO registration is not easily acquired and is only obtained after rigorous guidelines have been established. Due to this, consumers as well as any company that wants to do business with an ISO 9001 certified corporation can rest assured that they will receive the best quality deliverables their money can buy.

International Standards are also mindful of the environment and expects companies carrying this particular type of certification to observe governmental regulations, especially in regards to green energy sustainability.

Because safety is paramount, particularly when it comes to the manufacture of consumer grade goods, any company that has obtained ISO 9001:2008 certification can be said to care about the general well being of the population as well as their employees.

Of course, with increased customer satisfaction comes increased financial potential, another added benefit of certification.

Increased Efficiency Equals Faster Output

Employing the use of tried and tested International Standards ensures that products are not only manufactured quickly, but efficiently. The requirements of the certification establish work flows and environments that are conducive to organization. Organization often translates to increased workplace safety. Quality controls can also be implemented which, in the engineering and machinist fields, is an extremely important production requirement.

As stated previously, increasing safety and efficiency can greatly speed up production, which aids in finishing all important projects faster. Engineers rely on speedy turn around, so they are more apt to give their business to a company who can meet their deadlines in a timely fashion. This is why they often prefer dealing with institutions that have ISO 9001:2008 certification, as most machining shops that have this are most likely set up to meet their needs.

Obtaining the ISO 9001:2008 certification then becomes very important in securing long term business in the manufacturing field.

Properly Establishing ISO Credentials

When indicating your ISO registration status, there is a proper and improper way of doing so. For instance, simply saying one is ISO certified or has received ISO certification or is ISO certified is not right…it is best to state that you are “ISO 9001:2008 certified" or that you have an "ISO 9001:2008 certification".

Don’t Be Fooled by Imitators

Many CNC and EDM milling companies will claim to be ISO complaint, but the reality is that such companies are not being completely honest. As we established previously, there is a big difference between compliance and certification/registration.

It pays to vet out any CNC/EDM machining company prior to placing your precision designs and specs in their hands. If you want to make sure you will receive quality deliverables, trust a ISO 9001:2008 certified company like Arbiser Machine to get the job done.
