Business Benefits of ISO

Next Session: May 20, 2021
1:00pm MST


Think about it this way: If the typical manufacturing operation is high school, ISO certification is like graduate school. The benefits of obtaining ISO certification are too great to ignore:

  • Consistently meet customer requirements
  • ISO opens doors to government and international opportunities
  • Being ISO certified offers a competitive advantage, especially in the aerospace and medical device industries

This 60-minute presentation is intended to provide an overview of the most important business benefits of ISO certification for manufacturers. Then, there will be 30 minutes for questions, so you can make sure you have understood the potential impacts on your business success.

This session is hosted by our colleagues at Manufacturing Solutions, an Alaska-based Manufacturing Extension Partnership (MEP).
