This paper discusses how ISO 9000, the International Organization for Standardization certificate, is implemented in business worldwide. It examines the history and origins of this organization and explains why it is important to consumers.

From the Paper:

"Proof of a quality system usually cannot only rely on the company's internal quality measurements. This can prove to be bias and untrue, so companies look for a third-party certification program that will show proof if the company actually does have a quality system in place. "Up until a few years ago, there were no viable third-party certification schemes available (Tricker, p.10)." However, with an increase in demand for quality assurance, during all stages of the manufacturing process, there began the requirement for businesses to have a recognized set of standards. Having the proper third-party certification program can offer the ability to have a set of standards for company's worldwide to be compared to. The third-party certification program can let other companies know that there is a set of testable standards in place that can be trusted. It can also provide confidence to a consumer that the certified company has a high-quality system for their manufacturing processes."
