What Will ISO 9001:2000 Transition Involve?

ISO has confirmed that the ISO 9000 series FDISs will begin circulating for balloting September 15, 2000. As publication of ISO 9001:2000 approaches, it is important to understand that the transition to the 2000 edition of ISO 9001 will be more complicated than the transition to the 1994 editions of ISO 9001/2/3. To help you understand what the transition period will involve, some facts about the transition are examined. Organizations considering when to update their ISO 9001/2/3:1994-registered QMSs should take advantage of the transition period to revise their QMSs to conform with ISO 9001:2000 and gain added value. A July 9, 2000, communiqué providing details from the TC 176 meeting in Kyoto is also reprinted.
