While the two certifications are entirely different (ISO 9001 certification focuses on quality management and ISO 14001 certification focuses on environmental standards), both are proof that any company you are looking to work with has met strict international standards. ISO certification also goes a long way toward showing a company’s commitment—to itself, to its product and to its customers.
ISO 9001:2008 specifies requirements for a quality management system where an organization needs to demonstrate its ability to consistently provide product that meets customer and applicable statutory and regulatory requirements. In the addition, the organization aims to enhance customer satisfaction through the effective application of the system, including processes for continual improvement of the system and the assurance of conformity to customer and applicable statutory and regulatory requirements.
Canon Virginia Inc. has been certified to the ISO 9001 standard since 1993.
ISO 14001 specifies requirements for an environmental management system to enable an organization to develop and implement a policy and objectives which take into account legal requirements and other requirements to which the organization subscribes, and information about significant environmental aspects. It applies to those environmental aspects that the organization identifies as those which it can control and those which it can influence.
