UKHO is pleased to have obtained the revised standard ISO9001:2015. ISO 9001 is the international standard that defines the requirements for a Quality Management System (QMS). A Quality Management System enables organisations to manage their processes and systems in order that customer and other stakeholder requirements can be achieved. At its core is the principle of continuous improvement.

ISO aims to ensure that products and services are safe, reliable and of good quality. Whilst ISO certification does not guarantee product quality it does ensure that the processes that surround the product are controlled and performed in a consistent manner. For some businesses, they are viewed as strategic tools used to reduce costs by minimising waste and errors and increasing productivity.
