International Standards Organization
The ISO 9000 series are of course the most well known and widely used of international standards. However, the original quality management standard was actually BS 5750, which was published by BSI in 1979. The ISO 9000 series first emerged in 1989 and was based upon this. It has been revised and updated (by a revisions committee TC 176) approximately every five years since then (1995, 2000 and 2005). The actual family of ISO 9000 standards is quite large, but the major documents are as follows:
• ISO 9000: Quality management systems - Fundamentals and vocabulary
• ISO 9001: Quality management systems – Requirements
ISO 9001:2008 specifies requirements for a quality management system where an organization
§ needs to demonstrate its ability to consistently provide product that meets customer and applicable statutory and regulatory requirements, and
§ aims to enhance customer satisfaction through the effective application of the system, including processes for continual improvement of the system and the assurance of conformity to customer and applicable statutory and regulatory requirements.
