I can't begin to tell you how many people will insist their company is ISO 9001 Certified. Unfortunately, many, many people do not understand the distinctions between Accreditation, Registration and Certification.

Marc,

You are right on. A company has a "Registered" System, not a "Certified" System.

"Good morning, our company is accredificated to ISO58028..." where 58028 = 9001+14001+18001+17025. The higher the ISO number, the more impress will be our customers!

Does ISO know what they are talking about?

The organization or the system?

With ISO 9001:2000 or ISO 14001:2004, it is the management system that is certified, not the organization that implements the system. However, since the management system has no independent existence, it is acceptable for organizations with certified systems to describe themselves as certified on condition that they specify the extent of the certification.
