The ISO 9001 is defined as the international standard that specifies requirements for a quality management system (QMS). GD Rectifiers uses the standard to demonstrate their ability to consistently provide products and services that meet customer and regulatory requirements. It is the most popular standard in the ISO 9000 series and the only standard to which organisations can certify.
The ISO 9001 was first published in 1987 by the International Organisation for Standardisation (ISO), an international agency composed of the national standards bodies of more than 160 countries. The latest version of ISO 9001 was released in September 2015.
