Marketplace: FS 9000 May Spur ISO 9001 Growth in Slow
Stewart Anderson asks: Would FS 9000 do for ISO 9001:2000
registrations in the finance industry what QS-9000 has done
for ISO 9001/2:1994 registrations in the automotive industry?
Anderson provides US sector demographics data, explores how
FS 9000 might be used to improve the "quality" of
financial services as conceived of in ISO 9001:2000, analyzes
ISO 9001/2 registrations in the North America and examines
the reasons that registration growth has been slow and what
are the major drivers for development of FS 9000 that would
increase QMS use in financial services.
