ISO (International Organisation for Standardisation) and the IAF (International Accreditation Forum) have agreed on an implementation plan to ensure a smooth transition of accredited certification to ISO 9001:2008, the latest version of the world's most widely used standard for quality management systems (QMS). Like all of ISO's more than 17 000 standards, ISO 9001 is periodically reviewed to ensure that it is maintained at the state of the art. ISO 9001:2008, published late last year, replaces the year 2000 version of the standard which is implemented by both business and public sector organisations in 170 countries.
