What is ISO 9003?

ISO 9003 is obsolete.

ISO 9003 Model for quality assurance in final inspection and test covered only the final inspection of finished product, with no concern for how the product was produced.

The three standards (ISO 9001, ISO 9002, and ISO 9003) were combined into ISO 9001 in the year 2000 revision (ISO 9001:2000) which was replaced by ISO 9001:2008.

The current ISO 9000 Family is:

  • ISO 9000:2005 Fundamentals and Vocabulary used in the ISO 9000 Standards
  • ISO 9001:2008 contains the actual requirements an organization must comply with to become ISO 9001 Registered. People often say "ISO 9000" certified, but what they mean is they have met the requirements of the ISO 9001 standard. Read more...
  • ISO 9004:2009 Managing for the sustained success of an organization. Read more...
