The International Organization for Standardization (ISO) develops and publishes standards for quality control. ISO 9001 specifies requirements for a quality management system where an organization needs to demonstrate its ability to consistently provide products that meet applicable statutory and regulatory requirements, as well as customers’ needs.
Few printing companies are ISO certified. This is mostly due to the
fact that they cannot demonstrate the existence of an effective quality
management system that satisfies an independent, external audit. This
standard is most popular in more sensitive types of manufacturing like
pharmaceuticals. Quality conscious manufacturers of sensitive products
chose ISO certifications to insure the consistency of their quality and
increased efficiency of their system. Print buyers who are looking for
dependable, quality minded, and reliable vendors, should consider an
ISO 9001 certification in choosing suppliers. Don’t ask vendors if they
provide quality products or deliver on time; ask them to prove it!
Asking for an ISO 9001 certified supplier shows that you are serious
about the quality of products you are purchasing. This eliminates the
need for timely vendor evaluation process, and reduces the concern
about your supply line. It shows your seriousness about what you expect,
and requires the vendors to demonstrate that they do as they say. If you
need more than just a sales pitch, then look for vendors who are ISO
