ISO 9000 is a set of internationally recognized standards for quality assurance and management. Published by the International Organization for Standardization, it aims to encourage the production of goods and services that meet a globally-acceptable level of quality. ISO 9000 is a quality management standard that presents guidelines intended to increase business efficiency and customer satisfaction. The goal of ISO 9000 is to embed a quality management system within an organization, increasing productivity, reducing unnecessary costs, and ensuring quality of processes and products.ISO 9000 was first published in 1987 by the International Organization for Standardization (ISO). It was based on the BS 5750 series of standards from BSI that were proposed to ISO in 1979. ISO 9000 is defined as a set of international standards on quality management and quality assurance developed to help companies effectively document the quality system elements needed to maintain an efficient quality system. They are not specific to any one industry and can be applied to organizations of any size. They are issued by certification/registration bodies (also called Registrars or CB's), which are independent of ISO. CB's need to be accredited by an IAF member to be internationally recognized. ISO 9001 supports you to increase the control of your business processes. The more you control your business, the more your consistency rises. Increased consistency means your customers are getting the same good service or same good products every time they are making business with you. ISO 9000 aims to improve quality and facilitate business objectives.
