How do you know if a QMS is viable across the globe?

For almost 30 years, the ISO 9001 standard has been used in the United States. Thousands of manufacturers and non-manufactures have acquired QMS certificate. Attaining ISO 9001 recognition declares to customers "you can trust our quality system" while also giving order to the management of the organization's business system.

Wednesday, 24 February 2016
ASR Editor
Your organization's web site has information that is important to your QMS. It might be advertising (communications media) your firm's capabilities and should reflect the current operating status and scope statement found on your registration certificate.

The American National Accreditation Board (ANAB) governs USA registration bodies and they have mandated certain requirements for client communications material. ANAB's objective is to ensure certificate holders don't promote a service such as design when the organization's certificate scope does not reflect that activity.
