Frequently Asked Questions

What happens when new standards are published?

When new and updated standards are published, ASQ will still test candidates' knowledge of that standard, but the correct answer should be provided according to both the new and old standard until:

  • The new standard becomes fully implemented (such as ISO 9000: The new standard is now fully implemented, so the old standard is NO LONGER tested).
  • The old standard is no longer used by the industry (for example: the Z1.4 and Z1.9 standards have been released, but a deadline for implementation is not required, so both the old and new standard are in use, and answers to test questions should be the same in both years).
