The International Organization for Standardization (ISO) explains what certification means.
“International standards ISO ensure that products and services are safe, reliable and of appropriate quality. These are strategic tools that reduce costs by minimizing waste, the frequency of errors, and increasing productivity. They help societies to enter new markets, ensure the same conditions for developing countries and facilitate free and equal global trade”.
This is, of course, very interesting, but what does it actually mean for us?
It would be good to clarify right from the start that not every society can achieve the accreditation. The process requires a certain level of commitment, quality management, which also needs to be dealt with by the best-functioning companies. Once the ISO status is awarded, the successful company is required to maintain the respective standards, so you can fully trust firms that keeps pace with the development in its field.
