Because ISO 9001:2008 has been released, this forum will be closed to new posts and new threads on 18 November 2008.
I anticipate a lot of questions over the next few months on WHERE to obtain a copy of the 2008 version. Shall we start a new thread just to include lists of WHERE to buy together with prices? I recall various sources had prices ranging from reasonable to ridiculous for the 2000 version.
For example I got an email today from ASQ on purchase price for electronic copies and a link to "preorder" hard copies (which apparently are not yet ready at ASQ.)
The ASQ price includes a discount for ASQ members
ANSI/ISO/ASQ Q9001-2008: Quality management systems – Requirements (e-Standard)
Note: You cannot print or share electronic standards. The file contains a secure watermark to protect the copyright. E-Standards purchases are non-refundable.
This standard specifies requirements for a quality management system where an organization:
- needs to demonstrate its ability to consistently provide product that meets customer and applicable statutory and regulatory requirements, and
- aims to enhance customer satisfaction through the effective application of the system, including processes for continual improvement of the system and the assurance of conformity to customer and applicable statutory and regulatory requirements.
All requirements of ISO 9001:2008 are generic and are intended to be applicable to all organizations, regardless of type, size and product provided.
To purchase a Site License of this standard to post on your company's Local Area Network or Intranet, visit our Site License home page.
PDF. File Size 785 KB. 40 pages. 2008

Hard copy will be shipped by November 24, 2008 (hard copy - soft cover)
at the same price as single-user electronic copy
Sadly, the ASQ website is not yet geared to sell site licenses for this Standard - keep checking!
The hard fact is an organization aiming at registration to the Standard "should" have its own copy. It seems to make sense to assure the copy is "legal," not pirated!
