What is ISO 9000 and what does it do.
The International Organization developed the ISO 9000 series of standards for Standardization (ISO), a federation of national standards bodies from some 130 countries based in Geneva, Switzerland. The ISO’s primary function is to develop guidelines for effective management systems, which in turn can serve as a framework for continuous improvement. The ISO 9000 family represents a consensus on good management practices, which is an accepted business standard in more than 90 countries. ISO 9002 is among the most comprehensive and difficult certificates to obtain, requiring careful documentation of all quality management procedures and evidence of a consistent system in conformance with international standards. ISO 9002 specifies audits by third-party registrars for initial registration and continued compliance.
