A Look At First Registrations to ISO 9001:2000
THE OUTLOOK requested information about "first
US registrations" to ISO 9001:2000 from the top QMS registrars
in North America. In response, 6 provided information about
12 organizations that were issued new or updated certificates
for ISO 9001:2000 on or soon after December 15, 2000. An analysis
of the registrations and a brief profile of each of the 12
organizations and their registration experiences is provided.
The fact remains that December 15, 2003, is not far away for
more than 300,000 organizations worldwide that hold ISO 9001/2/3:1994
certificates of registration.
