ISO Certification - An Overview
The International Standards Organisation (ISO) is an international body providing guidelines for companies in terms of product quality, health, and performance. An ISO registration enhances the reputation of your service or product. There are different types of ISO certifications, such as ISO 9001, ISO 14001, ISO 5001, etc.
ISO 9000 is viewed in terms of quality and prestige. To meet the regulatory requirement and customer satisfaction, companies go for ISO 9001:2015, ISO 19011:2018, ISO 9000:2015.

Choosing between the varying classifications of ISO can be confusing. E-Legalindia ISO consultation team helps you pick the right certification. We are just a call away to assist you in determining what you need to register for the ISO certification.
Before getting an ISO certification, the following aspects have to be considered:
- The first thing is to get the right ISO 9001 certification that benefits a business
- The second step is to find the best ISO registrar who is certified by ISO and follows the CASCO standards to the T. The ISO body can be IAF certified and non-IAF certified. IAF stands for the International Accreditation Forum. An IAF accreditation only adds more credibility to the certificate and the absence of an IAF accreditation does not impact the legality of the certification. It is these third-party agencies who will test the company on behalf of ISO and judge its worth.
At e-Legalindia, we do the basic groundwork and help find the perfect ISO registrar and the precise certification a firm needs.
The primary reason a company needs an ISO certification is if it is mandatory by law or contract. Some companies and government tenders might insist on only dealing with ISO-rated providers. The secondary reasons to conform to the standards are:
- Brand Reputation: ISO certification helps organisations build their reputation in the marketplace.
- Global Presence: ISO certification is a globally recognised standard. Organisations that are ISO certified are recognised all over the world.
- Boosts Revenue: Customers are more likely to purchase products and services when the company is ISO certified, this results in increased revenue.
- Better Quality: ISO certification ensures that consumers receive high-quality goods and services.
- Enhance Productivity: Implementing ISO standards enables organisations to operate their businesses more efficiently, resulting in increased efficiency.
An increasing number of organisations are opting for ISO 9001 certification because the standards benefit them by consistently improving their outcomes and processes, and because it is a valuable prerequisite for customer acquisition. The certification is bound to exponentially benefit an organisation if ISO 9001 is implemented with the right legal guidance.
- Scope of business
- ID proof or address proof of authorised person.
