Article Abstract

The completion in 1987 by the International Standards Organization (ISO) Technical Committee 176 of the ISO 9000 Series Quality System Standards set in motion a number of significant developments that are having impact world-wide. The ISO 9000 Series has been adopted as national standards by most industrialized nations and is a foundation for Quality System Registration, which has the potential of improving free trade world-wide. Before discussing the many present and potential implications of the ISO 9000 Series, we should first understand the history of its development, the scope of its content and its limitations.
