ISO-TS 16949:2002 Second Edition Certification

A Globally Accepted Standard of Quality
The standards for ISO Certification are set by The International Organization for Standardization (ISO), a specialized international agency for standardization that currently comprises the national standards bodies of 91 countries.

The purpose of ISO is to promote the development of standardization to facilitate the international exchange of goods and services, and to develop cooperation in intellectual, scientific, technological, and economic activity.

The ISO Certification Series is a set of five individual, but related, international standards on quality management and quality assurance, developed to effectively document the quality system elements that industries must implement in order to maintain an efficient quality system. These standards are generic rather than specific to any particular products and can be used by manufacturing and service industries alike.

The ISO Certification series is the only system accepted internationally.

The Certification Process
In order to be certified to the ISO Certification standard, firms must employ an accredited independent third party to conduct an on-site audit of operations against the requirements of the appropriate standard.

Upon successful completion of this audit, the company receives a registration certificate that identifies the quality system as being in compliance with ISO Certification Series Standards.

After certification is registered, the accredited third-party registrar performs periodic surveillance to assure that the company's quality system is being maintained.

If the company fails to maintain it's quality system, the registrar will suspend or cancel registration.
