Last week we welcomed 2 auditors of the International Organization for Standardization (ISO) in our main office in Ghent, Belgium. The were to check if we still meet the standards of the international quality label ISO 9001. Of course we succeeded with flying colors for this audit, even with transition to the new standard 9001:2015 !
The IAO is, ever since the begining of 1997, the proud owner of the ISO 9001 quality label. Not only were we the first European osteopathy academy to obtain this label, up until today we are still the only osteopathy academy in Europe that complies with the new ISO 9001:2015 standard. We find it very important to continue obtaining this quality certificate. ISO is an independent organization that provides international standards for different industries, education being one of them. These standards focus on innovation and ensure the quality, safety and efficiency of an organisation.
We continue to do our very best to adapt our internal procedures year after year to the new ISO standards so we can keep this quality label.
