The ISO 9001 Standard

ISO 9001 standard for quality management systems.

The ISO 9001 standard specifies requirements for a Quality Management System where an organization needs to demonstrate its ability to provide product that consistently meets customer, regulatory and statutory requirements. It lists provisions for controlling and documenting the organizational processes that can affect quality.

This isn't a product specific standard; ISO 9001 is deliberately generic and process oriented, and can be applied across industries and sectors. It describes a management system, not a quality control system, although controlling quality is the natural result of good management. If your goal is tighter control over manufacturing with more predictable output and company-wide quality assurance, ISO 9001 is a leap in the right direction.
