But it was your idea
ISO 9000 is a European framework for companies to outline their standards and strategies but it is based on the Japanese culture of team involvement. This was first though up in the USA in the 1950's and implemented in Japan by Deming (he of the Deming prize) amongst other American academics and industrialists. So it is a bit of a pointless gesture blaming Europe for more red tape legislation based on the American quality measuring system of the 1950's.
