The ISO9000 Registration Process

As any company's quality management system can be compared for compliance to ISO9000 a substantial business has developed in offering this service. These are now approximately 120 Registration Bodies throughout the world. All of them operate in similar fashion, however their prices and operating timescales differ widely.

Summarizing the Registration process:

Once a company achieves Registration is can be used as a marketing benefit, as a demonstration to all customers (and potential customers) that the company has a consistent quality management system.
