Labforward has received ISO 9001:2015 certification

We are delighted to announce that Labforward has recently received ISO 9001:2015 certification. Our aim with this certification is to inspire trust in our company and our associated technologies; Labfolder our Electronic Lab Notebook, Labregister our Inventory Management System, and Laboperator our Lab Execution System.

So what exactly is ISO 9001:2015 and what does this mean for our customers?

ISO (International Organization for Standardization) is an independent organization with a worldwide membership of 167 national standard authorities. Their aim is to bring together industry-specific experts to share knowledge and aid the development of consensus-based, market-relevant International Standards that support innovation and deliver robust solutions to global challenges.

One such standard is ISO 9001:2015, a globally recognized standard that specifies the requirements for a quality management system (QMS). Having a QMS in place helps us not only to define our day-to-day operations but also aids in meeting our company objectives.

This certification demonstrates our ability to reliably provide products and services that meet not only the needs of our customers but also the applicable statutory and regulatory requirements.

What are the benefits of choosing an ISO 9001:2015 certified company?

Being ISO certified means that we are dedicated to maintaining the highest possible quality standards within Labforward. Our customers have the assurance that they are in safe hands as we not only have the relevant tools in place to effectively manage our own internal processes but you can be confident that we have safety protocols in place to minimize any risk to your own data.


Some of the key benefits associated with an ISO certified company:

  • High Quality of Products and Service

Having an ISO 9001 certification inherently means that we have successfully implemented a QMS that has been deemed of high quality by third-party assessors. To obtain our ISO 9001 certification, we chose the highly respected and widely recognized TÜV SÜD as our certification body. Having received a TÜV SÜD certificate is therefore a testament to our strong commitment to fulfilling and continually adhering to the quality management system requirements set out by ISO.

  • Continual Improvement of Procedures and Preventative Action

We routinely monitor, assess, and improve our procedures to ensure they are effective at meeting our obligations to our customers. By implementing this system, we aim to identify and resolve any potential issues early, thus preventing them from impacting our users.

  • Listen to Customer Feedback

Your feedback is vital to our success, for this reason, we are always collecting user feedback. It is our aim here at Labforward to continually review our systems and to implement as many feature requests as quickly and as efficiently as possible. On this note, if there is a feature you would like to see please feel free to contact us here.

  • Legal Compliance

Working with ISO 9001 certified companies often is a necessity by regulatory bodies. It guarantees that you are working with a company that understands and adheres to statutory and regulatory requirements.

How does this apply to your Lab?

Laboratories wanting to patent their research or aiming to commercialize their work will no doubt be subject to strict audits that require all research data and documentation to adhere to relevant quality guidelines and regulations. You can be assured that we take quality and compliance within our company very seriously. This is reflected not only in our internal processes but also in the features we make available in our products. 

Being ISO 9001:2015 certified is a testament to our continued commitment to providing the best possible services to all of our customers.  If you are interested in learning more about how we can facilitate adherence to ISO guidelines for your Laboratory, you can also check out our whitepaper here.
