9000 registration is a seal of approval that commands a
high price for product or value offered. Why? Because a
perfectly documented trail of compliance must be associated
with that product, throughout the design, procuring, manufacturing
and shipping processes.
registration, in and of itself, is not a guarantee of excellence, but it does guarantee that the product
has been built
for every step of the training and manufacturing process
is the key to obtaining and retaining ISO registration.
But beware: just as the Constitution of the United States,
short as it is, governs the Nation's entire body of laws,
satisfying the ISO standard can (and often does) generate
a great deal of supporting texts.
documents are best: they update easily and are always there. And
backing them up to an off-site location is safe and easy.
