Conference to Assist with ISO 9000 Process


May, Bill, THE JOURNAL RECORD


Receiving ISO 9000 certification for international trade is not the end of the road in proving a company's qualifications. Instead, the certification means that a company is on the right track, but there's a lot of work involved maintaining that certification.

"The standard was just rewritten," said Karla Marshall, who heads the Moore-Norman ISO 9000 Training Center at the Moore-Norman Vocational-Technical Center. "We just received the new set of standards in July. They are now ready to be issued to companies wanting them.

"One of the objectives of this conference is to allow Oklahoma companies to use each other as a resource, to understand that they can call upon one another to see if mutual problems have occurred and how they were solved.

"Already in an informal way this is being done. But we feel there needs to be more of it done. Oklahoma companies can be a good resource for other Oklahoma companies.

Certification to ISO 9000 standards means that a company's manufacturing process meets standards set out by the International Organization for Standards. Nearly all European companies, a lot of Asian companies and now North American companies require their vendors to have achieved ISO 9000 certification, Marshall said. …
