A quality management system defines and establishes an organization’s quality policy, objectives and procedures. Quality management system standards do not provide specific quality indicators or describe ways of achieving them, since these will be different in every situation. Instead, they provide generic frameworks and general principles that can be applied to any organization, of any size, in any industry.
Scope of accreditation
The Standards Council of Canada (SCC) accredits certification bodies that assess and certify quality management systems to the international standard ISO 9001 Quality Management Systems.
Benefits of SCC accreditation
SCC accreditation demonstrates an organization’s competence to manage and perform activities defined by its specific program scope of accreditation. Through SCC accreditation, certification bodies are able to obtain independent, third-party, credible test results for themselves and for their customers.
SCC accreditation helps certification bodies deliver services with confidence and attract new customers. As a signatory member to several international mutual recognition and multilateral agreements, SCC’s Accreditation Program is internationally recognized.
SCC’s Criteria and Procedures section highlights each international standard and Canadian procedural document whose requirements must be met for a particular accreditation program.
