ISO 9000 Standards were created to promote consistent quality practices across international borders and to facilitate the international exchange of goods and services. The Guidance Standards include ISO 9000-1 and ISO 9004-1. Conformance Standards include ISO 9001, ISO 9002, and ISO 9003.
Meeting the stringent standards of ISO 9000 gives a company confidence in its quality management and assurance systems. Registration adds credibility. It provides independent, third-party evidence to customers and potential customers that a supplier's quality system conforms with ISO 9001, ISO 9002, or ISO 9003.This provides confidence that the registered supplier will provide products and services that meet their expectations.
