ISO 45001 is the latest universal standard for workplace health and safety, replacing OHSAS 18001. The standard helps to reduce occupational threats to enhance employee safety.
Getting ISO 45001 certified helps you to show that the company maintains a best-practice Occupational Health and Safety Compliance Program – reducing the risk of injuries and violations of regulations, as well as enhancing the organization’s operational efficiency.
The standard surpasses other established health and safety guidelines as it has been produced by a group of workplace health and safety specialists. This takes into account other universal guidelines in this field such as OHSAS 18001, the ILO-OSH Standards of the International Labor Organization, numerous national requirements, and the international labor laws and conventions of the ILO. Which makes it one of the most important management systems used to date for health and safety.

The AS 9001 is a recognized standard designed specifically for Aerospace. It includes the requirements of the aviation, space, and defense industries. The standard is very similar to ISO 9001:2015 but adds more specific requirements to support products with a focus on Aerospace, customers, suppliers, and processes. The key purpose of the standard is to demonstrate the ability to consistently deliver customer-pleasing products and services and the relevant statutory and regulatory requirements. This aims to enhance customer satisfaction by effectively applying the system through processes for improving the system and ensuring customer conformity, as well as relevant statutory and regulatory requirements.
Most certified companies in the Aerospace sector will not do business with a company unless they are certified with AS9100. Indeed NASA, the U.S. Department of Defense and technology companies including Boeing and Lockheed Martin both need AS9100 certification from suppliers.
Additionally, AS9100 offers a global standard in the manufacture of aerospace products that the whole industry can agree with. The AS9100 meets many of the same ISO 9001 specifications.
Benefits of AS9100
- Standardizes one audit authority and eliminates multiple evaluations in the aviation sector
- Enhances your marketability on a global scale
- Ensures the safety and reliability of products
- AS 9100 strengthens the internal processes to maintain high-end quality and meet customer requirements
- Implementing the AS9100 standard includes control of business processes with a view to increasing performance, quality improvement and profitability
- Boost the balance sheet and return on investment
When it comes to our cars, there are three things we all want: quality, safety, and reliability. IATF 1649:2016 sets the benchmark which helps ensure quality production by the automotive industry.
The International Organization for Standardization ( ISO) is actively finding ways to evaluate and implement modern principles in the quality control arena. In-car parts and components, the automobile industry uses universal requirements to guarantee the quality, safety, and reliability – this is where IATF 16949:2016 comes into action.
Since its initial development in 1999, ISO / TS 16949 has gradually evolved into an international standard to meet the automotive industry’s continued expansion. The specification was overhauled in 2009 and published as IATF 16949:2016 by the International Automotive Task Force in 2016. The current model essentially removes existing models and had accredited vehicle manufacturers upgrading to the latest edition until September 14th, 2018.
Why IATF 16949:2016 is important
IATF 16949:2016 certification is a mandatory prerequisite for the sector. This is to ensure the alignment of global quality systems for the automotive industry. Nevertheless, it does not function independently but operates in collaboration with ISO 9001 to identify the criteria for companies within the automotive sector with a QMS.
The Defense Department is introducing a modern standard in cybersecurity and its called the Cybersecurity Maturity Model Certification (CMMC) for military contractors. It is created to improve safety vulnerabilities in the defense industrial base, protect its supply chain as well as being based on the current NIST SP800-171.
CMMC is expected to improve the way to strengthen the implementation of DFARS thus supporting small companies to develop their cybersecurity and slow down the IT and R&D losses from criminals. This new requirement would include impartial, 3rd-party audits as well as including it as a requirement for every organization involved in the DoD industry. CMMC is now in its early phase of development, with five maturity thresholds planned.
DoD Contractors have to decide what level of CMMC they choose to get and enforce the appropriate controls. Contractors who have already implemented ISO 9001, NIST SP 800-171, ISO 20000-1, and ISO 27001 should comply with the new CMMC requirements by about 85-90 percent.
Several current certifiable cybersecurity and guideline frameworks are being evaluated to integrate best practices into the Cybersecurity Maturity Model Certification (CMMC) for the implementation of controls and processes. CMMC is dedicated to significant risk reduction against cyber threats.
ISO Pros can help DoD Contractors prepare for CMMC and are only a call away.
CMMI is a valuable tool for many organizations, integrating software engineering and systems engineering into product engineering. CMMI encourages cooperation between systems engineering and software engineering while turning the emphasis on the final user and its processes. Additionally, CMMI provides for easier and more efficient patterns and assessment preparation
CMMI provides more detailed product life cycle coverage than other process-improvement products that are used on its own. For eg, CMMI ‘s engineering focus has surpassed that found in CMM Software. CMMI’s process management importance has surpassed that found in SECM.
CMMI products incorporate many lessons learned during the development, maintenance, and utilization of the source models from which they were built. For eg, CMMI goods have solved some of the problems found in both the CMM Program and the SECM.
Organizations using the Software CMM that reached maturity levels 4 or 5 provided the SEI with information on their successes and difficulties. Using this information, CMMI developed more robust, high level best practices. CMMI solutions are thus better suited to companies’ requirements at higher maturity levels.
CMMI provides an opportunity to eliminate the stovepipes and barriers that typically exist in different parts of an organization and that other process-improvement models typically do not address. The integration of practical product technical knowledge and validated process management techniques results in a range of well-integrated processes that can promote project management and enhance the cycle of development — and the subsequent goods.
