In an increasingly complex and global market, Chile’s small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) have the opportunity to broaden their client portfolios and target markets. But at the same time, these SMEs require the tools to generate confidence among their clients and demonstrate the good quality management of their products and services.
What is NCh 2909 certification?
NCH 2909 is Chile’s common quality standard for small and medium-sized enterprises. It is founded on the continuous improvement of processes and enables organisations to demonstrate their commitment to process improvement in the sphere of resource and quality management. The continuous improvement of quality management systems enables SMEs to boost their competitiveness and ensure their viability over time.
The standard focuses in particular on the management and protection of a company’s key assets (infrastructure, merchandise, vehicles, raw materials and end products), defining business development strategies and ensuring the ongoing viability of the business.
