For nearly two decades, this standard was primarily used in the U.S. defense and aerospace industries. In the mid 1960s, the former Soviet Union introduced a national standard in an attempt to manage quality or goods across the country.

In 1987 ISO completed and released its 9000 series of standards. The ISO 9000 series of standards first gained popularity in Europe. By the late 1980ís, ISO 9000 standards had reached the U.S. market.  ISO 9001 standard are not product specific and can be used by a wide range of manufacturing and service companies. The ISO 9001 standard requires that a company develops and implements a basic quality management system, using the specific elements to ensure the company is capable of maintaining uniformity of its processes and, as a result, provides its customers with a consistent quality of products and services.  Check our Products page to see how our ISO documentation can help you solve your "quality control" problems and improve quality of your products and services!
