What are ISO Management System Standards?

ISO Management System Standards are documents that provide requirements, specifications and guidelines that can be used consistently to ensure that materials, products, processes and services are fit for their purpose.

A Management System is a set of documents, policies, processes, procedures and templates that guides a business towards its objectives and goals. A Management System can conform with the requirements of one or more ISO Management Standard(s).

More about ISO Standards

What is ISO?

ISO (the International Organisation for Standardisation) is an independent, non-governmental organisation, based in Geneva, Switzerland.

It is the world’s largest developer of voluntary international standards and facilitates world trade by providing common standards between nations. It’s made up of 165 member countries. 

ISO has published more than 23,000 International Standards covering almost every industry.

The ISO story began in 1946 when delegates from 25 countries met at the Institute of Civil Engineers in London and decided to create a new international organisation ‘to facilitate the international coordination and unification of industrial standards’. In February 1947, the International Organization for Standardization officially began operations.

The name ‘International Organization for Standardization’ would have been different acronyms in different languages, so the short form ‘ISO’, derived from the Greek isos, meaning equal, was decided upon – whatever country, whatever language, ISO is always equal.

International regulation for ISO

How are ISO Standards regulated in the international marketplace?

The International Accreditation Forum regulates a single worldwide program for Certification to International Standards, providing assurance that Accredited ISO Certificates can be relied upon to provide confidence that a business has met the requirements for Certification, as well as international recognition of ISO Certificates.

Independent Accreditation Bodies in each international region all around the world (the Australian/New Zealand Accreditation Body is JAS-ANZ) manage the Conformity Assessment Bodies (CABs), commonly known as Certification Bodies, who ultimately certify organisations, people or products within their region.

For more information on how to check if an ISO certificate is valid internationally, read our blog here.
