ISO is not an acronym (it’s the name of a company) and is the International Organisation for Standardisation based in Switzerland where all the standards and certifications come from.
These internationally recognised ‘standards’ cover a vast range of activities from creating a product, managing a process, delivering a service or supplying materials to customers and designed to ensure a service is efficient and consistent.
Quality management standards: Support companies and staff work more productively and reduce product failures.
Environmental management standards: support the reduction of environmental impacts, reduce waste and help organisations be more sustainable.
Health and safety standards: are their to reduce accidents in the workplace.
IT security standards: are in place to help organisations keep sensitive information secure.
One way to get ahead of the competition is to hold the right certification for your industry. A good place to start is ISO 9001, which will help you achieve a better result, due to it being implemented by over 1.2 million companies and organisations in over 170 countries, this can be used by any organisation, regardless of its field of activity and size.
Other certifications that are very popular include ISO 27001 (for Information Security) and ISO 45001 (for Occupational Health and Safety). These types of certifications help gain trust and more points, which gives you a much better opportunity to secure the business you are tendering for.
ISO 9001 is the world’s most popular standard and sets out the criteria for a quality management system, ensuring profitability, market share, increased business performance, customer satisfaction and sustainability to name a few.
This standard is based on a number of quality management principles including a strong customer focus, the motivation and implication of top management, the process approach and continual improvement.

Yes! This standard is recognised world-wide and will enhance your reputation and processes, setting the standard for excellence and quality. Your customers will feel reassured, you’ll find procurement easier and employee satisfaction will grow with less waste, few issues and importantly ensuring a right first time approach.
You can also choose to be certified independently by a third party, and this is a great boost for the brand and its people to achieve.
With over 25 years experience in ISO 9001 and having issued thousands of certifications, our friendly team at Temple will deliver certification swiftly following your system being implemented via an accredited auditor.
The process would typically be documenting the management system and identifying any training requirement (if required), followed by a report identifying your existing processes and procedures and any amends required.
You and your business will then have time to make the changes of any non-conformities found. Once this gap analysis is complete, an accredited auditor will visit and if everything is smoothly set-up (which our team at Temple will make sure) and your certification will be with you!
Yes. Support is available from our head office, virtually or/and onsite at your premises, from one of our Temple consultants.
We’ll be with you each step of the way for your annual re-certification.

Business can suffer detrimentally from these occupational injuries. ISO 45001 was developed to create a framework to improve working conditions and reduce workplace risks.
The ISO 45001 standard is intended for use by any organisation and can address many, if not all legal requirements.
