ISO Registration and Certification for ISO 9001

ISO Certification & Registration

The ISO 9001 Certification is an International Quality Standard developed by the International Organization for Standardization (ISO), a worldwide federation of national standards bodies representing over 120 countries. ISO registration is simple and helpful to many organizations. ISO 9001 certification through an accredited ISO 9001 registrar instills customer confidence. ISO 9001 registration also verifies that the organization which met ISO 9001 Certification requirements has an effective management system that meets internationally recognized Quality Management System (QMS) standards.

The International Organization for Standardization (ISO) published the new edition of ISO 9001 in December 2000, which replaced the 1994 edition of the 9001 ISO standards as well as ISO 9002 and ISO 9003.

The new Standard takes a more generic approach towards all industry sectors rather than manufacturing based focus of the previous editions. The structure of the new ISO 9001:2000 Standard takes on the model of Plan, Do, Check, Act based on the 8 Quality Management System (QMS) Principles.

ISO 9001 can be applied at any type and size of organization, from small family-run businesses to large corporate and government institutions. When implemented effectively, the 9001 ISO standard provides a flexible framework for a customer focused business management system to continuously improve business performance and growth.

The 8 Quality Management Principles are:
  Customer focus
  Involvement of people
  Process approach
  System approach to management
  Continual improvement
  Factual approach to decision making
  Mutually beneficial supplier relationships
The standard covers all aspects of an organization’s activities, including; identifying its key processes, defining roles and responsibilities, policies and objectives, documentation requirements, the importance of understanding and meeting customer requirements, communication, resource requirements, training, product and process planning, design processes, purchasing, production and service, monitoring and measurement of products and processes, customer satisfaction, internal audit, management review, and improvement processes.
UPDATE: ISO9001:2008
The time to comply with the new standard is here now. ISO9001:2000 will be withdrawn, along with all certificates of the same, on November 15, 2010. Although the new ISO9001:2008 standard contains no new requirements for ISO 9001 registration, there are a number of areas that will require review for conformance to the new standard and to the organization own procedures. This concerts to additional time required by the Certification Committee to complete the review and approval of the audit documents to the new revision and issuance of the new certificate.
Companies still holding certificates that show ISO9001:2000 need to contact their Registrar immediately ISO registration that conforms to the standards of ISO certification 9001:2008. This also applies to holders of AS9100 and AS9120 as ISO9001:2008 is a part of these Aerospace Certification schemes.
If the certificate is withdrawn, it will not be renewed and a new, a complete ISO certification 9001:2008 audit will need to be conducted before an ISO registration can be completed with an accredited ISO 9001 registrar.
All audits, including satisfaction of non-conformances must be completed prior to November 15, 2010. Please call the ISA office at 951-736-0035 ext. 103 for more information.
