ISO 9001

ISO 9001 certification for Quality Management Systems.

Arguably the most important piece of business literature ever written. With over 1,000,000 organisations certified worldwide, ISO 9001 is truly a globally recognised standard, which will help your organisation to continually improve your processes and manage business risks to meet the needs and expectations of your customers and other stakeholders.


ISO 9001 certification from Lloyd's Register (LR) is suitable for organisations of any size and in any sector. It demonstrates that a quality management system (QMS) follows a robust and globally recognised approach that’s focused on continual improvement and customer satisfaction. In many cases, independent third-party certification to ISO 9001 is a requirement to trade, so can help deliver new business opportunities as well as driving internal efficiency. 

What we offer

LR recognises that every organisation and its QMS are unique. The impact of the revision to the ISO 9001:2015 will depend upon the complexity of your organisation and the maturity of your management system.

At LR, we take time to understand the needs and unique circumstances of our clients and their businesses, to act with judgement, sensitivity and care.

Our independence means that we’re committed to doing things the right way to reach the highest standards and best outcomes for all, giving our clients confidence in our decisions every time.

We specialise in management systems compliance including gap analysis, assessment and certification, all underpinned with expert advice designed to meet the needs of your industry. 

We explore every problem thoroughly with exact, analytical precision.  We leave no stone unturned and no questions unanswered, to draw accurate conclusions.

We provide practical client training courses worldwide in various languages, led by trained and qualified tutors. Many of our courses are endorsed by relevant professional bodies and based on our experience of assessing management systems. We offer both public and in-house training services including customised training solutions.

A wide range of assurance services
Don’t let your certification journey stop with quality; at LR, we deliver certification, validation and verification assessment services to all of the world’s leading standards and schemes including health and safety, environmental, sustainability, energy management, business continuity, cyber security and many more.  

What are the benefits?

Satisfied customers, streamlined processes and easy integration.
Accredited ISO 9001:2015 certification from LR enables you to demonstrate your commitment to quality and continual improvement to your customers and other stakeholders. This can provide you with a competitive advantage, where certification is not already a contractual obligation.

By following the best practice principles found in the standard, you will develop a more robust approach to risk management, a process approach to quality and a greater understanding of the internal and external context of your organisation, all of which will contribute to your effectiveness and performance.

The Annex SL High Level Structure used by ISO in its new and revised standards makes it far simpler for management system controls to be integrated into a single ‘business management system’, which can help to reduce duplication in cost and effort.

Why choose LR?

LR has been at the forefront of standards development and a market leader in certification and training for more than 25 years.  

Technical expertise
Technical specialists from LR were involved in developing ISO 9001:2015. Our assessors are industry specialists who are matched with your business needs, enabling an effective and robust audit of your system. We’re expert in not only understanding the potential in cutting-edge ideas, but applying this pragmatically in ways which guarantee impact today and in the long-term.

Your business helps LR to help others
The profits we generate fund the Lloyd’s Register Foundation, a charity that supports engineering-related research, education and public engagement around everything we do. All of this helps us stand by the purpose that drives us every single day: working together for a safer world.
