ISO 9001:2008, which is administered by the International Organization for Standardization, is recognized globally as the guideline for establishing and maintaining an effective quality management system for business in any sector. Companies seeking registration must be able to demonstrate to the satisfaction of an independent third-party auditor an ability to consistently provide products that meet customer and regulatory requirements. ISO 9001 has existed for almost 20 years. In 2008, the standard was revised, placing more emphasis on continuous improvement and customer satisfaction.
