Which Organisations need ISO 9001 2000?

It would be difficult to name an organisation that will not be affected by the requirement to introduce ISO 9001 2000.

Virtually every manufacturing and service company should be aware of the ISO 9001 2000 standard that will affect the companies they sell to, their suppliers and their internal quality practices.

Any organisation that is regulated can expect to have to conform to ISO 9001 2000 standards within the near future. The EEC (European Economic Community) is continuing to identify certain sectors of manufactured goods that will be regulated to conform to ISO 9001 2000.

If you want to get one of your organisations products "kitemarked" then you must achieve ISO 9001 2000 registration before the kitemark licence is issued.

Some commodities are already under the EEC requirement to conform to ISO 9001 2000 standard. These include:

  • Medical devices
  • Industrial safety equipment
  • Telecommunications equipment
  • Industrial laboratory equipment
  • Commercial scales
  • Gas appliances

    This means manufacturers of these commodities must be compliant with the requirements laid down in ISO 9001 2000 in order to sell these commodities into the EEC.
