Publication date

R2i is extremely pleased to announce our 5th ISO certification and guidance, ISO 9001. This certification is a globally recognized standard that sets out the criteria for a quality management system (QMS). Developed by the International Organization for Standardization (ISO), ISO 9001 outlines the principles and requirements a company or organization should follow to ensure that its products or services consistently meet or exceed customer expectations. This standard emphasizes a process-based approach to quality management, encouraging organizations to identify, monitor, and continually improve their processes. Obtaining ISO 9001 certification signifies a commitment to quality, customer satisfaction, and a systematic approach to managing business processes, fostering trust among customers and stakeholders. 

“Information security is essential to offering first-rate services to our clients and to maintaining a relationship based on trust,” explains Benoit Martel, president of R2i. “By obtaining our ISO 27001 and 27018 certifications, we’ve demonstrated our commitment toward data protection whether the data is our own or our clients’. I am very proud of this accomplishment and would like to thank the entire team involved in this project. I would also like to applaud the efforts of our employees, each of whom play a role in ensuring our data is protected, digitally and physically.” 

What is ISO 9001?  

ISO 9001 is a standard for quality management systems (QMS) developed by the International Organization for Standardization (ISO). The certification is awarded to organizations that demonstrate compliance with the requirements outlined in the ISO 9001 standard. The standard focuses on various aspects of quality management, with the goal of ensuring that organizations consistently meet customer expectations and deliver products or services that meet high-quality standards. 

Key principles and requirements of ISO 9001 include:

  • Involvement of people: Employees at all levels should be involved and engaged in achieving the organization’s quality objectives.

  • Risk Management: The standard encourages organizations to identify and manage risks, helping them anticipate and respond to potential issues more effectively.
