    ISO Stands for International Organisation for standardization. ISO is an international standard whose prime aim is to optimise the quality process of an organization that will improve overall performance of an organisation in terms of Productivity and yeilds. This standard does not give any conformity to the product but it gives conformity to the process an organisation is adopting to produce its product.

    Actually this is a common myth. "ISO" is a Greek word - "isos" meaning identical or equal. It's because country standards which may not carry the same number i.e. BS 5750 can be dually numbered to the rest of the World.
    If the purpose of implementation of a quality system isn't to ensure conformity of product, which leads to customer satisfaction, why bother?

    These statements seem to contradict each other, at least when considering yields. The standard's intent has always been to provide a framework in which to develop systems that would result in product/service conformity, but there has never been a sanctioned guarantee because of how widely organizations vary in their application.

    Totally agree, Jennifer. Sapna: this is the very foundation of the use of supplier QA requirements, which the ISO 9001 standard was born from.

    Dear Sapna, please refer to cl.01 of the standard: "The potential benefits to an organization of implementing a quality management system based on this International Standard are: a) the ability to consistently provide products and services that meet customer and applicable statutory and regulatory requirements;"...

    I believe what you mean is that "This standard does not give specific requirement for products/services, but gives requirement on the QMS processes employed by the organization to produce/deliver products/services".:)
