Quality Management Systems

ISO 9001 QMS

IFC Certification are accredited to ISO/IEC 17021-1 by UKAS to provide certification of quality management systems (ISO 9001) for manufacturers and installers operating in the fire protection industry.

System certification focuses on the management system you use in your company. It clarifies responsibilities, authorisations and procedures within your organisation. Most shortcomings in an organisation can be traced back to unclear communication and insufficient clarity about responsibilities, tasks, competencies and procedures.

Implementing a quality management system in compliance with ISO 9001 will increase people’s awareness of what they do, how, when and why they do it.

Client opinions emerge through customer satisfaction surveys. Other aspects of business operation are also more manageable when a well-functioning management system is in place. 

The advantages are evident: more efficient work processes, happier employees, better risk control, improved customer satisfaction and greater profits.
