BACKGROUND AND THE NEED FOR ISO
It has long been recognized that investment in Quality Management Systems in addition to responding to customer expectations results in improved efficiency of the organization, its operations and economic performance besides improvement in the quality of its products and services.
In fact in the present highly competitive global open market, it has become all the more necessary to give due emphasis on 'Quality' keeping the 'Customer' as focus by implementing a 'Quality Assurance System'. This is also an essential pre-requisite to the achievement of Customer Satisfaction and Customer Relation. The ISO 9000 International Standard provides such a system with focus on continuous improvement by training of personnel, documentation of the system and by developing internal quality audit system. Any organization dealing in global trade and business must implement ISO 9000 system to be on the route to the Total Quality by participation and involvement of all the people in the organization.
Quality management System (QMS) certification as per ISO 9001 is an important opportunity that can enable the organization to acquire the label of an enterprise caring for the customer needs and improve their economic performance at the same time. QMS provides an organization a systematic structured documented and effective approach to consistently maintain the product quality meeting customer requirements.
The recent revision of the ISO 9000:1994 Quality Assurance System standard to the ISO 9001: 2000 Quality management System standard aims at enhancing Customer Satisfaction Control of the process through the application of "Statistical Techniques" and "Continual Improvement" in the organization's performance.
WHAT IS ISO 9000
The ISO 9000 series is first and foremost an integrated, global system for optimizing the quality effectiveness of an organization by creating a framework for continual improvement.
The ISO 9000 family of standards has been developed to assist organizations of all types and sizes, to implement and operate effective quality management system. ISO 9000 ensures consistency of products / services.
