If you are ISO 9001 registered, let us help you develop an Export Compliance Program that is integrated into your ISO program.
One of the benefits of going through the rigor and hard work to become ISO 9001 registered is that your company can conduct its daily operations based on a documented, controlled quality management system. Many of the necessary elements that keep you in compliance can be added to existing ISO procedures. Any new export procedures will be released as additional ISO procedures, in the same format as your existing procedures. This allows you to have the best control over the training and introduction of any new work procedures.
A second benefit of being ISO 9001 registered is that the quality management system has built in to its requirements the use of internal and external audits to provide system feedback and continuous improvement. This will apply to the Export Compliance Program through the ISO procedures, automatically giving you the export compliance required audit features within your already existing ISO framework.
A third benefit of being ISO 9001 registered is that your company has committed to conducting quarterly management reviews of the ISO 9001 system, including audit results and corrective actions, as well as overall process improvements. This keeps the Export Compliance Program visible to management, achieving another export compliance requirement within your already existing ISO framework.
This way there is no separate program, no second set of internal auditors, no second management review meeting.
Get the most out of Export Compliance while getting the most out of your ISO System.
