What is the Meaning & Definition of What is ISO 9000

The International Organization for Standardization, popularly known as ISO, is the organization that is establishing standards of manufacturing, communication and marketing, both products and services, at the international level. What is basically proposing the ISO is standardizing safety rules. Meanwhile, ISO 9000 is a series of rules inherent in the quality and the continuous quality management, applied to organizations, whatever their nature, that are dedicated to the production of goods and services. In this legislation, ISO, establishes in detail the way in which a company must work the appropriate standards to bring quality to that which produced, indicate the deadlines for distribution and the levels that it must observe the service. Broadly speaking the ISO 9000 standard is proposed: standardize staff activity documenting its task; work in order to meet the needs of customers; monitor and measure the processes involved at all levels; avoid the re processes; promote efficiency to achieve objectives; promote products to improve constantly, among others. It should be noted that this rule takes effect in 1987 and its importance reaches a maximum level in the next decade. In the new Millennium was revised the original proposal of the standard since it did not meet at all to companies engaged in marketing of services and could shape an adaptable to any type of business standard. The work of certification is provided by special entities that audit the company and accordingly issued the certificate. In addition, these organizations are controlled by local agencies that regulate their performance. In order to ensure a satisfactory certification is recommended that the company is advised by a consultant in this field. On the other hand, the certification must be confirmed annually whereupon the company shall undergo in those terms a new revision to maintain the standard.
