ISO 9000 AND ISO 9001 PLAIN ENGLISH INTRODUCTION What is ISO 9001? ISO 9001 is a global quality management standard. Thousands of companies in over 100 countries have adopted it, and many more are in the process of doing so. Why? Because it controls quality. It saves money. Customers expect it. And competitors use it. ISO 9001 applies to all types of organizations . It doesn't matter what size they are or what they do. It can help both product and service oriented organizations achieve standards of quality that are recognized and respected throughout the world. ISO is the International Organization for Standardization . It is located in Switzerland and was established in 1947 to develop common international standards in many areas. Its members come from over 150 national standards bodies. How does ISO 9001 Work? Here's how it works. You decide that you need to develop a quality management system that complies with the ISO 9001 requirements. That's your mission. You choose to follow this path because you feel the need to control or improve the quality of your products and services, to reduce the costs associated with poor quality, or to become more competitive. Or, you choose this path simply because your customers expect you to do so or because a governmental body has made it mandatory. You then develop a quality management system that meets the requirements specified by ISO 9001
