What Is ISO For?
Today the emphasis is based on what is called "third party" verification. When a company goes through the process of being certified, or registered, as complying with ISO 9000 or other variations of ISO standards then they are considered to be acceptable. Purchasing can then feel free to go ahead and place the order based on price. After all if everyone is considered acceptable then money is the only difference. ISO certification is a ticket that gets the company on the list of those who have been willing to comply with the collection of Quality Assurance materials put together by the International Standards Organization.
