ISO EMS/QMS Auditing Standard Approved
Voting on ISO/FDIS 19011 concluded internationally on August
13, 2002, with unanimous approval and publication due by November
2002. However, because of US concerns with the lack of guidance
on certain issues, the ANSI Z1 Committee has delayed voting
to approve ISO 19011 as an American National Standard but
approved a proposal to draft a US supplement to ISO 19011.
A report on the progress achieved so far on 19011S is included.
