Two questions:
1) Does somebody know how many (approx.) ISO standards there are? I mean those which are mandatory (ISO9001, ISO/TS16949, ISO13485, ISO22000, ISO17025, etc.), not those that are only guidelines (ISO9000, ISO19011, ISO9004, etc.)?????????

2) How long is allowed to a organization to resolved a Major NC found during an external audit (3rd party for certification or re-certification or surveillance)???? I heard 3 months, is that correct?

Thanks

Luis,

I know of no mandatory ISO standard. All are voluntary. What is the purpose of your question?

Yes, but three months is usually more than enough time to contain, correct and remove the root causes of a "major" nonconformity or at least convince the registrar that you have the situation under control.

Re: How many ISO Standards are there and Closing NCs

Well yes, all are voluntary unless required by customers as ISO/TS16949 and some other examples, however, I mean those ISOs that are a requirement to be certified; for example: an organization can't get certified in ISO9000:2005, but can get certified in ISO9001, ISO/TS16949 (if automotive), AS9100 (if aerospacial), ISO22000 (if food related), ISO17025 (if measuring equipment fabricator/calibration service), etc.
Is probably a meaningless question, but it came up in an ISO training about one month ago and I'm just trying to figure out.

Thanks
