ISO 9001:2008:

Evergo Packaging is certified to ISO 9001:2008 standards.

Customers often ask why these certifications are important enough to be made part of bid specifications. This document attempts to answer that question.

What is ISO:

ISO (International Organization for Standardization) is the world's largest developer and publisher of International Standards.
ISO is a network of the national standards institutes of 163 countries, one member per country, with a Central Secretariat in Geneva, Switzerland, that coordinates the system.

What is ISO 9001:

The ISO 9000 family of international quality management standards and guidelines has earned a global reputation as a basis for establishing effective and efficient quality management systems.
These standards apply equally to all industries and require companies seeking certification to define how their systems meet the standards' rigorous requirements. Meeting the standards assures customers that all vendor company activities – design, manufacturing, production, purchasing, quality control, packaging, handling, storage, shipping, and customer service – are appropriately managed and controlled.
ISO 9001 specifies the basic requirements for a quality management system (QMS) that an organization must fulfill to demonstrate its ability to consistently provide products (which include services) that enhance customer satisfaction and meet applicable statutory and regulatory requirements as well process approach to continuous improvement.

Can any vendor be ISO-certified:

Yes. There are approximately 250,000 companies worldwide registered to ISO standards. Any company willing to make the effort can be certified, large or small, whatever its product or service, in any sector of activity, and whether it is a business enterprise, a public administration, or a government department.
Why should I require vendors to be ISO-certified?
• ISO 9001:2008 is direct evidence of a company's financial and ethical commitment to provide high quality, safe products.
• ISO 9001:2008 certified companies maintain comprehensive internal audit programs that demonstrate to customers the effectiveness of their quality efforts.
• ISO 9001:2008 certified companies utilize systems that have been accepted for use by over 80 countries as effective means to achieve product quality.
• ISO 9001:2008 certified companies document, review, and approve product designs that meet applicable safety, regulatory, and customer requirements.
• ISO 9001:2008 certified companies prove their systems through audits by independent registrars. Registrars are governed by strict international codes that dictate operating practices, audit methods, and staff qualifications. Failure to maintain quality program requirements will lead to de-certification by the registrar.
• ISO 9001:2008 certified company products reduce the need for the buyers to perform audits and reviews to determine if quality systems are in place and being maintained.
