Does the term ISO 9001:2008 imply we are all five years out of date?

A colleague of mine (who generally likes to ask awkward questions and pick holes in all things ISO!) pointed out to me that to the untrained eye, promoting a company on the basis that it is "ISO 9001:2008 certified" could be counter-productive as it might imply that the company is five years out of date.

Whilst I disagree to a large extent, I thought it was an interesting point and one worth posting on the cove to see what others think...

I agree with Pancho. Anyone who is cognizant of ISO 9001 most likely understands the date reference. Anyone who isn't cognizant probably doesn't care.
