International Organization for Standardization (ISO)

This is the official ISO website. Here you'll find information on the organization, on the ISO 9000 standards series, as well as on other ISO standards. You can also find links to national quality bodies (like ANSI for the USA). The site is a bit hard to navigate, and many articles are relatively dry and technical. To make it easier for you to find what you need, here are some useful links:

The bottom line: 4 stars


Wikipedia is a free encyclopedia with content provided and updated by its users. Wikipedia provides some interesting information about the history of the ISO 9000 standards series, about the different ISO 9000 revisions, about certification and auditing, and about industry specific versions; there is also a discussion on some of the criticism concerning the ISO 9000 standards series. Great information that's hard to find anywhere else!
