Procedure to get ISO certification

Understand the ISO Standard
The first step is to understand the specific ISO standard you want to apply for (e.g., ISO 9001 for quality management, ISO 14001 for environmental management, etc.). Each standard has its own requirements and principles, so comprehending what is expected is crucial.
Gap Analysis
Perform a gap analysis to identify the differences between your organization’s current practices and the requirements of the ISO standard. This can be done internally, but an external expert can often provide more objective insights.
Develop an Action Plan
Based on the results of the gap analysis, create an action plan to address the gaps. This plan should include objectives, tasks, deadlines, and responsible parties.
Implement Changes
Carry out the activities in your action plan. This could involve modifying existing processes, developing new policies, or conducting training sessions.
Internal Audit
Conduct an internal audit to verify your organization’s compliance with the ISO standard. The purpose of this audit is to identify any nonconformities that need to be addressed before the external audit.
Management Review
Hold a management review meeting to analyze the effectiveness of the ISO system and to make decisions about continual improvement.
Certification Audit

Arrange for a certification body to conduct the certification audit. This audit typically occurs in two stages: a preliminary audit to review your organization’s readiness and a final audit where the auditor will thoroughly examine your organization’s conformity to the ISO standard.

If the audit is successful, the certification body will issue an ISO certification. This certification is valid for three years, after which a recertification audit is needed.
