Partos 9001

Partos 9001 was developed by a Partos working group of quality managers as the most appropriate application of ISO 9001 for development organisations. It takes into account other standards and labels existing in the sector.

With this Partos 9001 statement, in addition to the ISO certification, you may qualify for a generally applicable exemption for the Ministry’s Organisational Risk and Integrity Assessment (formerly COCA). For many members, the exemption is a reason to have the Partos 9001 co-tested for free.
