In some instances, ISO certification or CE Marking is a requirement for doing business. This may be due to customer, legal or trading bloc requirements. Whether certification is required or not, ISO certification provides a variety of internal and external benefits to companies large and small. The documentation of company processes leads to more consistent and efficient production processes and less waste. Employees gain greater understanding of their roles and responsibilities, and the documented system forms the basis for training of current and new employees. With a focus on customer satisfaction and corporate responsibility, companies that have achieved certification have systems in place that help them produce higher quality products and as a result increased business.
