Quality Management Systems and Implementation of ISO 9001

Quality management has become increasingly present in the life of organizations. Their survival is mainly linked to the quality of their activities. The way in which each organization focuses on quality issues may vary according to the sectors and the environment where it carries out its activities and of course, the organization’s own strategies. There are various ways of focusing on quality and one of the options is to approach the quality management system using the standard ISO 9001.

The ISO 9001 standard is also slowly being adopted in public institutions, where still there are few information services that have opted to manage their quality system with ISO 9001:2008.

University programs, curriculum, laboratories, libraries, infrastructure, and other supporting activities are very important parts of the educational system. As different services to the university community, it has to have mechanisms for measurement and evaluation of all activities in order to guarantee the quality of the services offered and the satisfaction of their users.

The application of ISO 9001:2008 in the context of higher education institutions leads to a series of questions:

  1. What are the features shown by universities certified ISO 9001?
  2. What have been the reasons for implementing ISO 9001?
  3. Which difficulties has the implementation shown?
  4. Which advantages do the certified quality systems offer?
  5. What could be the future of the ISO 9001 standard in this context?
