ISO 9001 QMS, ISO 14001 EMS



The number of companies that have received ISO system certification worldwide has already exceeded 600,000, and the number of companies that have obtained ISO system certification far exceeded 40,000 in Korea.

Now, for almost every enterprise, system certification is a necessity, not an option.

Currently, the system certifications that have been acquired globally are ISO 9001 Quality Management System and ISO 140001 Environmental Management System.

Both of these certifications have long been the origin of many other system certifications.

More specific certification, we can say that ISO 22000 food safety management system, ISO 13485 quality management system for medical device, ISO / TS 29001 petrochemical quality management system and ISO / TS 16949 automobile quality management system. There are, of course, many more additional ISO system certifications.


It is also true that organizations now need to acquire and maintain ISO system certifications in their characteristics.

While requirements of ISO 9001 Quality Management System and ISO 140001 Environmental Management System mentioned above are maintained, but the requirements of the product require specific needs, the organization must acquire and maintain additional system certifications in the context.


Although the initial ISO certification was not aimed at the development of the management system, in the present 21st century, the ISO management system certification is becoming more and more diversified through the process of many subdivisions, .


ISO 9001 Quality Management System and ISO 140001 Environmental Management System certification have already been mentioned above as the oldest and most common system standard. However, organizations that understand the meaning of both authentic standards and apply them well to their organizations are rare. A large number of organizations think of it as an advertisement for customers' needs and for customers in the market.


We have seen a lot of cases where the organization calls for a slogan to envision a global standard organizational culture, increase management transparency and ethics, and lead a higher level organization through innovative initiatives. However, the two specifications already present a framework for these activities and suggest tools. It is also true that we are overlooking the true value and management logic of these two specifications.


The two specifications that we have easily seen and had were never made simple.

The International Organization for Standardization (ISO) standardizes specifications and processes made with a variety of processes based on the know-how accumulated through sufficient consultation and many trials and errors of world economic scholars to create a standard. It is not made easily only by quenching.

The ISO 9001 quality management system gives the impression that it is simple to look at, but the closer you look inside it, the more surprising it is that the logic and configuration hidden in this specification can not help but be surprised. Numerous business books published in the world are armed with brilliant writings and logic, and they also have various examples. However, it is also true that business administration is not an easy approach, so it does not get easy. However, the ISO 9001 quality management system is well organized with the logic of management, so there is a lot of considerations to make it easier for many people to approach it. This is an ISO standard, so it is a standard that many people can easily access.


Finally, in this short column, I would like to say that we do not have a clear understanding and approach to the two specifications that are common in our state, but rather a good I hope to use it as a management tool. The author believes that even if the ISO 9001 quality management system is used well, the organization will have the innovative changes mentioned above and will be able to establish a foothold to become a world-class excellent company in the near future. Clothes that are not fit to my body are uncomfortable and time-consuming.

No matter how good tools and systems are, it will be useless if you do not use them properly.


I hope that this article will give you a chance to think about ISO again
