What is ISO 9000 Registration?

Carol Ann Jaenisch

The registration concept uses an independent third party certification audit where the company audited complies with a given quality system standard. A system of controlled accreditation of third party auditors (registrars) is used internationally for registration.

These standards can be used to assist in the implementation of a quality assurance management system which will provide consistent quality of product and service to customers. The philosophy behind the standards is that; any part of an organization which can affect the product, is considered to be quality sensitive.
