The standard is based on a number of quality management principles including a strong customer focus, the motivation and involvement of top management, the process approach and continual improvement. Using ISO 9001:2015 accredited companies helps ensure that customers get consistent, good quality products and services, which in turn brings many business benefits.

ISO 14001:2015 sets out the criteria for an environmental management system. It maps out a framework that a company or organization can follow to set up an effective environmental management system.
