About ISO 9001:2000 Registration

ISO (International Organization for Standardization) is a global network that identifies what International Standards are required by business, government, and society, develops them in partnership with the sectors that will put them to use, adopts them by transparent procedures based on national input, and delivers them to be implemented worldwide. ISO has a current portfolio of over 15,000 standards that provide practical solutions and achieve benefits for almost every sector of business, industry and technology. ISO 9001:2000 specifies requirements for a quality management system (our method of getting the job done) where an organization needs to demonstrate its ability to provide products that fulfill customer and applicable regulatory requirements and aims to enhance customer satisfaction. Seven quality management principles lead an organization towards improved performance: customer focus, leadership, involvement of people, process approach, systematic management of processes, continual improvement, and a factual approach to decision making.
