What is ISO 9001:2000?

ISO 9001:2000 is now obsolete, it expired in November 2010.

ISO 9001:2000 was replaced by ISO 9001:2008. ISO 9001:2008 was replaced by ISO 9001:2015 September 2018.

ISO 9001:2000 was a major overhaul and replaced three standards:

  • ISO 9001:1994 – Manufacturing with Design & Development
  • ISO 9002:1994 – Production and Installation (No Design)
  • ISO 9003:1994 – Final inspection and test

ISO 9000:1994 version

ISO 9000:1994 emphasized quality assurance via preventive actions, instead of final product inspection, requiring evidence of compliance with documented procedures.

ISO 9000:1987 version

ISO 9000:1987 was based on BS 5750, with three quality management systems depending on the activities of the organization:

  • ISO 9001:1987 Model for quality assurance in design, development, production, installation, and servicing was for companies and organizations whose activities included the creation of new products.
  • ISO 9002:1987 Model for quality assurance in production, installation, and servicinghad basically the same material as ISO 9001 but without covering the creation of new products.
  • ISO 9003:1987 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.
  • ISO 9000:1987 was also influenced by existing U.S. and other Defense Standards (“MIL SPECS”), and was better suited to manufacturing.
