ISO 9001:2008 in brief
This "hands on" book provides practical information on how to cost effectively set up an ISO 9001: 2000 compliant Quality Management System.
The new ISO 9000:2000 family is an all-encompassing series of standards that lay down requirements for incorporating the management of quality into the design, manufacture and delivery of products, services and software.
To achieve its main objectives, ISO 9001:2000 requires the manufacturer, or supplier, to possess a fully auditable Quality Management System consisting of Quality Policies, Quality Processes, Quality Procedures and Work Instructions. It is this Quality Management System that will provide the auditable proof that the requirements of ISO 9001:2000 have been and are still being met.
This second ISO 9001:2000 In Brief explains the meaning of ISO 9000, its history, current status, requirements and changes being made to it. It also covers how ISO 9001 will affect businesses, and how they can easily and cost-effectively satisfy their customers' requirements for quality control and quality assurance.
