ISO 9001:2015 Compliance



ISO 9001:2015 outlines a process-oriented approach to documenting and reviewing the structure, responsibilities, and procedures required to achieve effective quality management within an organization. Specific sections of the standard contain information on topics such as:

  • Requirements for a quality management system, including documentation of a quality manual, document control, and determining process interactions
  • Responsibilities of management
  • Management of resources, including human resources and an organization’s work environment
  • Service development, including the steps from design to delivery
  • Customer satisfaction
  • Measurement, analysis, and improvement of the QMS through activities like internal audits and corrective and preventive actions

The key to the ongoing certification under this standard is establishing, maintaining and improving the organizational structure, responsibilities, procedures, processes, and resources in a manner where AWS products and services consistently satisfy ISO 9001:2015 quality requirements.

  • Does the AWS cloud meet 9001:2015 requirements?

    Yes. AWS has undergone a systematic, independent examination of our quality system to determine whether the activities and activity outputs comply with ISO 9001:2015 requirements. A certifying agent found our QMS to comply with the requirements of ISO 9001:2015 for the activities described in the scope of registration.

  • Why is ISO 9001:2015 important for AWS customers?

    AWS' ISO 9001:2015 certification directly supports customers who develop, migrate and operate their quality-controlled IT systems in the AWS cloud. Customers can leverage AWS’s compliance reports as evidence for their own ISO 9001:2015 programs and industry-specific quality programs, such as GxP in life sciences, ISO 13485 in medical devices, AS9100 in aerospace, and ISO/TS 16949 in automotive. AWS customers who don't have quality system requirements will still benefit from the additional assurance and transparency that an ISO 9001:2015 certification provides.

  • Can my organization be ISO 9001:2015 certified by association?

    The certification covers the quality management system over a specified scope of AWS services and Regions of operations. If you are pursuing ISO 9001:2015 certification while operating all or part of your IT systems in the AWS cloud, you are not automatically certified by association, however, using an ISO 9001:2015 certified provider like AWS can make your certification process easier.

  • Can I get a copy of the AWS ISO 9001:2015 Certification?

    Yes. AWS' certification can be downloaded here. The ISO 9001:2015 along with many other economic, environmental and social standards are available on the ISO website. ISO has made the decision to copyright these standards in an effort to help fund the processes leading to development.
