Have your say on the future of the standard

ISO TC 176/SC2 is carrying out a review of the ISO 9000 family of standards with a particular focus on ISO 9001:2008 – Quality management Systems – Requirements, to ensure its relevance for the future.  Feedback from users is of vital importance in this process in order to get a better understanding of their needs and what future revisions of Quality Management standards should address.
To gain this feedback ISO TC 176/SC2 have prepared in online survey which can be accessed from ISO 9000 User Survey.  The survey will be open for completion from October 2010 to February 2011.  It is very important that Irish users complete this survey to ensure Irish perspectives are represented in the feedback to ISO on the review of quality management standards.
