ISO 9000

ISO 9000 - The competition in the economy forces companies to offer their products as cheaply as possible and in good quality. The costs associated with defective products are enormous. In order to save costs and satisfy customers with high-quality products, many companies have standards for quality management and quality assurance / quality management presentation in short: ISO 9000 introduced.

This quality assurance is not only aimed for in the actual production. It also covers other operational areas, e.g. For example: marketing, sourcing, product development, packaging, sales, customer service and others.

The aim of the ISO series of standards (there is also ISO 9001, etc.) is not only to discover existing errors at the end of a work process, but to avoid them beforehand.

In the Federal Republic of Germany there are over 7,000 companies that are "certified" according to ISO 9000. These companies have received confirmation from a competent body (e.g. TÜV Cert in Bonn) that their companies work in accordance with ISO 9000.

The guidelines for quality assurance according to ISO 9000 have been drawn up by international bodies and are recognized by over 70 countries.

Many (especially large) industrial companies (e.g. in mechanical engineering, the automotive industry) already require their suppliers to be ISO qualified. The standard has therefore become a must for smaller companies too.
