Ely, England, 15 October 2012 - IT Governance Ltd, the global leader in information security and quality management systems expertise, has announced that it was appointed by Aegate, a secure authentication and traceability service provider for the pharmaceutical industry, to carry out a pre-certification audit on their ISO9001 Quality Management System (QMS). Consequently Aegate has received its certification to ISO9001.
Steve Watkins, Director – Training and Consultancy at IT Governance, says, ‘Our relationship with Aegate goes back as far as 2007 when we provided expert assistance for their information security management system. In 2010, we helped them prepare for and obtain their ISO27001 certification. We are delighted to have assisted them in achieving ISO9001-certification.’
Watkins continues, ‘ISO9001-certification offers organisations considerable benefits including cost savings from operational efficiencies, improved quality management and internal processes, higher return on assets and greater profitability. We are certain, that with their current ISO27001-certification and now the certification to ISO9001, Aegate will gain a considerable competitive advantage. Companies compliant with recognised security and quality management standards tend to be more trusted by their customers.’
ISO9001, the Quality Management Standard, is a best practice standard that guides companies and organisations internationally to implement a ‘best-in-class’ QMS.
