ISO (International Organization for standardization)
ISO (International Organization for Standardization) is the world’s largest developer and publisher of International Standards.
ISO is a network of the national standards institutes of 157 countries, one member per country, with a Central Secretariat in Geneva, Switzerland, that coordinates the system.
ISO is a non-governmental organization that forms a bridge between the public and private sectors. On the one hand, many of its member institutes are part of the governmental structure of their countries, or are mandated by their government. On the other hand, other members have their roots uniquely in the private sector, having been set up by national partnerships of industry associations.
Management system
Management system refers to what the organization does to manage its processes, or activities, so that its products or services meet the objectives it has set itself, such as:
-Satisfying the customer’s quality requirements,
-Complying with regulations
-Meeting environmental objectives
Management system standards
Management system standards provide a model to follow in setting up and operating a management system. This model incorporates the features on which experts in the field have reached a consensus as being the international state of the art.
Plan Do Check Act
The Plan  Do   Check Act (PDCA) cycle is the operating principle of ISO’s management system standards.
Plan
Establish objectives and make plans (analyze your organization’s situation, establish your overall objectives and set your interim targets, and develop plans to achieve them).
Do
Implement your plans (do what you planned do).
Check
Measure your results (measure/monitor how far your actual achievements meet your planned objectives).
Act
Correct and improve your plans and how you put them into practice (correct and learn from your mistakes to improve your plans in order to achieve better results next time).
ISO 9000 and ISO 14000
The ISO 9000 and ISO 14000 families are among ISO’s best known standards ever. ISO 9001:2000 and ISO 14001 (1996 and 2004 versions) are implemented by some 887770 organizations in 161 countries.
The ISO 9000 family addresses “quality management”. This means what the organization does to fulfill:
the customer’s quality requirements, and
applicable regulatory requirements, while aiming to
enhance customer satisfaction, and
Achieve continual improvement of its performance in pursuit of these objectives.
The ISO 14000 family addresses “environmental management”. This means what the organization does to:
minimize harmful effects on the environment caused by its activities, and to
Achieve continual improvement of its environmental performance.
ISO Advantages:
1. Productivity Improvement.
2. Improvement of profits
3. New employees can be easily trained
4. Marketing advantages
For certificate you have to follow Quality Manual, Quality Procedures, Records, work instruction
ISO partners
1. International electro technical commission
2. International telecommunication union
3. World trade organization
ISO has three membership categories:
  • Member bodies are national bodies that are considered to be the most representative standards body in each country. These are the only members of ISO that have voting rights.
  • Correspondent members are countries that do not have their own standards organization. These members are informed about ISO’s work, but do not participate in standards promulgation.
  • Subscriber members are countries with small economies. They pay reduced membership fees, but can follow the development of standards.
Participating members are called “P” members as opposed to observing members which are called “O” members.
