She also noted that Quality Management System records filing and traceability were good and easy to retrieve.
“It demonstrates the top management commitment, Company’s systematic and process-driven approach to quality performance, execution, and service consistency, and will meet the needs of stakeholders and employees.”
This strategic direction, she said, is aligned with the BSI credo, ‘Making Excellence a Habit’.
“We work closely with our partners to ensure they achieved excellence in their forte and propel their management system according to the subscribed standard certification, which will then, helps the organisation to adhere to the relevant values beyond the standard requirements.

Chye explained that ISO 9001 is the international standard that specifies requirements for a quality management system (QMS). Organisations use the standard to demonstrate the ability to consistently provide products and services that meet customer and regulatory requirements.
“Changes introduced in the 2015 revision are intended to ensure that ISO 9001 continues to adapt to the changing environments in which organisations operate.
“Some of the key updates in ISO-9001:2015 include the introduction of new terminology, restructuring some of the information, an emphasis on risk mitigation thinking to enhance the application of the process approach, improved applicability for services, and increased leadership requirements.”
She noted that globally there are over 1.2 million organisations certified to ISO 9001 and while it continues to be as relevant as ever, the revision will take into consideration a number of issues to ensure it enhances an organisation’s ability to consistently provide products that meet customer requirements.
Chye shared that BSI (British Standards Institution), a private company incorporated by Royal Charter, is a business standards company that equips businesses with solutions to turn standards of best practice into habits of excellence.
