Hall: Clarification of Intent Is Focus of Interpretations

The US TAG to TC 176 and other P-members have had the chance recently to comment and then vote on 6 draft and proposed "interpretations" of ISO 9001:2000 under a new process implemented in October 2002. Yet none have been made available so far to the ISO 9000 user community. The reason is that the ISO TMB is expected to vote on a final recommendation in May 2003. Morgan Hall explains that the ISO/TC 176 Interpretations process is intended to provide clarifications of intent of ISO 9001:2000 in those instances where the requirements are unclear, and he and others provide a detailed look at that process and who would use them.
