Answer:

Implementing ISO 9001:2015 in a single person Ltd company is possible and in fact, it should be quite straight forward because you won´t have to deal with certain issues such as communication problems that usually arise in larger organizations.

Regarding your question about if it is relevant or not achieving certification for a single man company - like for anything else in bussiness you will need to evaluate costs vs benefits of implementing the standard. If you determine that you will gain some work that otherwise you wouldn´t be eligible for, then you should consider implementing ISO 9001.
