However, there are plenty of lot of people that question, “is it all theory and a box-ticking exercise, or does it really benefit the entire company and all customers alike?”

That is a good question, and in this article, we will help answer the question for you and show that ISO standards do offer significant benefits for all involved. Read on to learn more!

ISO = International Organization for Standardization

ISO is an independent, non-government organization that publishes and develops international standards. Through its members, it brings experts together to help share knowledge and develop voluntary relevant standards that support true innovation and provide solutions to its worldwide standards. It is essentially the frameworks that help run businesses effectively for the betterment of all stakeholders. When a company is ISO certified, this is proof that they’ve been approved by an external body to comply with all requirements of the standard.


Streamlined and controlled lab processes, coupled with highly-skilled staff and excellent tools and quality materials, allow labs to be efficient in manufacturing, resulting in less waste use, faster output, and cutting costs.


These standards allow us to be very innovative and agile within our design practice, which enables us to be adapted to change efficiently and quickly, and therefore listen and respond to any industry issues to be able to supply cutting-edge solutions at the drop of a hat.

Improved Employee Engagement

Increased training and skills will allow staff to progress to fulfill their potential and take ownership of their fundamental role. Allowing staff to feel safe within their work environment also encourages motivation and engagement. Commitment and talent produce a top-quality test or result in the lab and also lends itself to friendly and excellent service.
