Applus+ certifies quality management systems of 151 ISSSTE sites in Mexico

Organisations receiving ISO 9001:2015 certification included health centres, educational establishments and other social services.
On 24th May, Applus+ in Mexico issued 151 ISO 9001:2015 quality certificates to workplaces affiliated to the Mexican civil service social security and services institute (ISSSTE).
Certified workplaces included child welfare and development centres; hospitals and medical centres; the School of Dietetics and Nutrition (EDN); and credit lenders.
According to Josep Prat, head of Applus+ Certification in Mexico, "this was a wide-ranging project with more than 100 centres certified across the country. Over recent years, Applus+ has won contracts with numerous big public bodies such as ISSSTE and the Sistema Nacional de Competencias (national skills council), part of Mexico’s Department for Education.”
ISSSTE’s Managing Director explained that this certification has enhanced the service ISSSTE offered to its members, reducing waiting times, improving administrative procedures and increasing transparency. It has also fostered a sense of trust and security among users while meeting their expectations.

ISO 9001:2015: the revised quality standard

ISO 9001 is the world’s best-known quality standard. It demonstrates an organisation’s commitment to the quality of its products or services. In 2015, ISO (the International Organization for Standardization) updated the standard with a view to improving on certain aspects of the 2008 version.
The transition period now enters its final phase. Since 15th March, it has no longer been possible to audit under the 2008 version of ISO 9001. The next milestone comes on 15th September, when ISO 9001:2008 will be repealed and all certificates issued under this old version of the standard will automatically expire. Any organisations failing to migrate to the new version in time will be required to carry out a completely new audit to obtain an ISO 9001:2015 certificate and will thereby lose their certificate’s longevity.
