This standard of ISO sets out criteria for Quality management system of organization. It can be used by any organization, large or small, regardless of its field of activity.
Checking that the system works is a vital part of ISO 9001:2015. It is recommended that an organization performs internal audits to check how its quality management system is working. An organization may decide to invite an independent certification body to verify that it is in conformity to the standard, but there is no requirement for this. Alternatively, it might invite its clients to audit the quality system for themselves. We provide ISO 9001:2015 certification.
The consequences of unsafe food can be serious and ISO’s food safety management standards help organizations identify and control food safety hazards. As many of today's food products repeatedly cross national boundaries, International Standards are needed to ensure the safety of the global food supply chain.
ISO 22000:2018 sets out the requirements for a food safety management system and can be certified to. It maps out what an organization needs to do to demonstrate its ability to control food safety hazards in order to ensure that food is safe. It can be used by any organization regardless of its size or position in the food chain.
HACCP stands for Hazard Analysis and Critical Control Point. This process identifies hazards that could threaten food safety, such as sources of bacteria or chemical contamination. Critical control points are the points in food production or handling during which these hazards become a factor. HACCP is the part of ISO 22000 that directly addresses these hazards and sets up procedures for monitoring the critical control points for variables like correct temperatures and acceptable levels of cleanliness. HACCP also involves keeping accurate records and verifying that the procedures in place are working.
A Good Manufacturing Practice (GMP) is a production and testing practice that helps to ensure a quality product. Many countries have legislated that pharmaceutical and medical device companies must follow GMP procedures, and have created their own GMP guidelines that correspond with their legislation.
The implementation and enforcement of Good Manufacturing Practices (GMP) in Blood and Plasma Collection Establishments is considered a priority as a tool to minimize the risk of transmitting currently known and emerging blood-borne diseases. Basic concepts of all of these guidelines remain more or less similar to the ultimate goals of safeguarding the health of the patient as well as producing good quality medicine, medical devices or active pharmaceutical products.
In the U.S. a drug may be deemed adulterated if it has passed all of the specifications tests but is found to be manufactured in a condition which violates current good manufacturing guideline. Therefore, complying with GMP is a mandatory aspect in pharmaceutical manufacturing.
OHSAS 18001 is the internationally recognized assessment specification for occupational health and safety management systems. It was developed by a selection of leading trade bodies, international standards and certification bodies to address a gap where no third-party certifiable international standard exists.
