Why is an effective QMS important?
An effective QMS provides a framework for quality planning, assurance, and control. It is used to manage and improve an organisation's quality policies, objectives, and responsibilities. A QMS can be used to assess and improve an organisation's quality performance.
It can also be used to monitor compliance with, for instance, ISO quality system requirements. For heavily-regulated businesses operating in the food industry, healthcare, or cold chain logistics, QMS is especially critical to staying in business.
