Frequently Asked Questions

What is the key difference between ISO 9001 and ISO 21001?

Both ISO 21001 and ISO 9001 are management system certification but the application makes them dissimilar. ISO 21001 is an Educational Organization Management System that defines the functional capacity of an educational organization and its ability to deliver quality education and training. In contrast, the ISO 9001 certification is Quality Management System (QMS) and is the most popular global standard for quality management. The ISO 9001 framework helps companies enhance the operations and the quality of their products, thereby making the service consistent.

The prime difference is in the applicability of the framework. The ISO 21001 standardization focuses on education-related industry and the ISO 9001 follows a generic approach.

Why is Educational Organizations Management important for you?

If you run an educational institution, having the ISO 21001 certification is vital. It is essential for educational organizations of all sizes to abide by the norms of the global certification. You can develop a reliable brand image, deliver quality education, nurture the professional resources with the best offerings and make the operational process efficient. Simply put, it enhances the revenue-generation ways by strengthening the EOMS or education management system. Thus, you must consider the certification steps.

How do I get started with the ISO 21001 Certification?

The certification accreditation process of ISO 21001 is methodical. It can be complex if you do not follow the correct steps or connect to a reliable audit resource for the inspection before certification. Applying for the certification is the rudimentary step and you need to be careful with the documentation process. You can connect to IRQS for the best audit service under expert auditors before issuance of the certificate. Get an accurate inspection report from IRQS and recognize the gaps to strengthen the EOMS.
