Quality Management Systems and ISO 9001 Training
Many consider ISO 9001 the quintessential system standard, yet ISO 9001 is often misunderstood. For example, ISO 9001 is frequently described incorrectly as a management system. ISO 9001 is a system standard, and as such it provides basic, agreed requirements for good management practices.
The minimal requirements set forth by ISO 9001 only establish a framework for exceptional organizational performance, they do not guarantee it. In order to excel, organizations use and improve their quality management systems, or QMS. The QMS is the system used to run your business, to convert stakeholder needs into stakeholder satisfaction through effective business process management. ISO 9001 provides a framework for your system, a guide for viewing your QMS through the lens of the processes that make up your organization.
Attend one of our QMS Lead Auditor courses to find out how your company can profit from meeting the requirements of ISO 9001.

Differences Between ISO 9001 and ISM Code
One Business Management System, Many System Standards
With so many system standards, it is often difficult to decide which (if any) are vital to your organization. ISO 9001 is the most well-known and used of the system standards (with its predecessors coming from British Standards and United States military specifications). Systems conforming to ISO 9001 may also conform to other systems standards that are deemed necessary by the organization. For example, it is not uncommon for a system to meet the requirements of ISO 9001 and ISO 14001 (the environmental standard), and of BS OHSAS 18001(Health and Safety).
Because system standards are NOT management systems, you must develop your management system around how you do business and not around published system standards. The approach explained in this site shows you how to do this and still ensure conformity to any management system standard.
