The revised quality management systems ISO 9001:2000 was put in place in December 2000. There is huge international interest in the subject, particularly from companies already certified to ISO 9001, ISO 9002 and ISO 9004, needing to update their existing systems to ISO 9001:2000.
ISO 9001:2000 Audit Procedures fills a need for a guide which will assist auditors in completing internal, external and third party audits of existing ISO 9001:1994, ISO 9002:1994 and ISO 9003:1994 compliant Quality Management Systems, newly implemented ISO 9001:2000 Quality Management Systems and transitional QMSs.
Organizations must also be prepared to undergo an audit of their own quality procedures from potential customers and prove to them that their Quality Management System fully meets the recommendatins, requirements and specifications of ISO 9001:2000. ISO 9001:2000 Audit Procedures describes methods for completing management reviews and quality audits.
