QMS certification (an abbreviation of the “Quality Management System”) is a verification carried out by a disinterested party, which results in issuance of the special Certificate of Compliance. Thus, compliance of the system of the company with a number of requirements described in the national and international standards is documented. Issuance of these standards containing the requirements for the QMS of the companies is performed by the International Organization for Standardization (ISO).

In Russia, national ISO standards are developed on the basis of the international ISO standards.

Despite the fact that QMS certification in the Russian Federation is voluntary, it is currently very popular. For Russian companies, ISO certificate is required to join in the SRO, to sign contracts with major partners, to participate in tenders, to attract customers and so on. The international ISO certificate is required for organization focused on the international market, planning to manufacture products for export, and others.
