Black Space Technology has been awarded ISO 9001 certification for its Quality Management System (QMS) by its notified body, CQS. ISO 9001 is the international standard for Quality Management Systems and is the world’s most widely used QMS standard. ISO 9001 is based on the “process approach” to implementing a chain of value added activities in the course of delivering a service. ISO 9001 certification requires an accredited third party auditing organisation to thoroughly review the company’s internal QMS processes. This ensures that those processes are capable of consistently delivering services that meet customers’ needs and expectations.
