About the ISO 9001:2000 standard:
The ISO 9001 standard is maintained by the International Organization for Standardization (ISO) and is administered by accreditation and certification bodies. It is a generic standard that can be applied to any industry, regardless of the product or service delivered. The standard refers to an organization's structure for managing the processes or activities that transform inputs of resources into a product or service to meet customized objectives, such as satisfying customer quality requirements.
The International Organization for Standardization was established in 1947 with the mission of contributing to economic and social progress. ISO's international standards and deliverables were designed to support the following: facilitation of global trade; improvements to quality, safety and security; environmental and consumer protection, including the rational use of natural resources; and global dissemination of technologies and good practices.
The ISO is currently an association of approximately 149 national standards bodies, each of which represents its own country. ISO employs a system of technical committees, sub-committees and working groups to develop its international standards. For more information about ISO, visit http://www.iso.org.
