 About ISO 9001:2008

The goal of the International Organization for Standardization (ISO) is to promote the growth and development of manufacturing, trade, and communication among businesses worldwide. The164-member global federation accomplishes these goals by developing voluntary quality management standards that facilitate worldwide trade and the production of quality products and services, and encourage good business practices.

The most widely recognized of these standards is the ISO 9000 series, a basic quality management system that can be used in industries of any size and type anywhere in the world. Registration to ISO 9001:2008 (or another quality standard) provides objective proof that a business has implemented and satisfied all the requirements of a quality management system.
