What would be the most unexpected legitimate business that would apply iso9001:2000 and what would its processes be like? just think about it.....

and how will the auditors ensure that customer requirements are being met

some of the organizations i'm considering are::notme:

1. A marijuana vending business in amsterdam
- some of the KPI's would be: Number of overdosing complaints, number of new products developed
- The QC's Inspector's responsibility would be: to validate every new product and samples from every new batch to test for its effectiveness in meeting customer requirements
2. An escort service in amsterdam
-some of the KPI's would be: Number of rejected products, production rate,
- And the QC Inspector's resposnibilities shall include measurement of different characteristics of the product to ensure that it shall consistently meet customer requirements

can you think of some more

Re: ISO9001:2000 applied to a marijuana business

I saw that Canada is choosing a new marijuana supplier. The reason was complaints about potency and lack of variety from medical users. Here's one article on it:

medical Winnipeg -- People who want to grow pot for the federal government may soon get the chance.

Health Canada's five-year, $5.75-million contract with its current supplier of medicinal marijuana, Prairie Plant Systems, appears to be winding down and the department is preparing to seek proposals from all potential suppliers.

"Public Works and Government Services Canada continues to negotiate with Prairie Plant Systems to ensure an uninterrupted supply of marijuana for research and for authorized users while a (request for proposal) process is carried out to identify a long-term supplier," said Health Canada spokeswoman Carole Saindon.

As it does for a wide range of contracts - from building maintenance to military supplies - the government will invite interested companies and individuals to submit bids for a pot-growing contract. It will then try to choose the one offering top quality and value for taxpayers.

The process could result in Prairie Plant Systems being selected again, or some other supplier could get the nod.

Some who use the current pot supply are urging the government to shop around.

"What we need to move beyond is the idea of a single monopoly producer of medical cannabis," Philippe Lucas, a medicinal pot user and spokesman for the group Canadians for Safe Access, said from Victoria, B.C.

"The end users of this product - Canada's critically and chronically ill - would benefit from having options."

People on medicinal marijuana respond better to different strains of the drug, Lucas said, and want the right to choose from a selection.

About 280 patients currently receive the government pot, which Prairie Plant Systems grows in an unused section of a hard-rock mine near Flin Flon, Man. Most patients buy 30-gram bags of ground plant buds for $150.

Many users returned the initial batches of the underground ganja, saying it was too weak to relieve their symptoms and was also too dry.

Prairie Plant Systems made changes in 2004 to boost the levels of THC - the active ingredient in marijuana - and said return rates dropped to less than two per cent.

Health Canada's contract with the company expired last December. It was renewed until the end of June and has been extended until Sept. 30.

It's not clear whether there will be further extensions or whether the government will call for bids before the end of September.

When the federal government first sought marijuana suppliers in 2000, Prairie Plant Systems beat out several bidders from British Columbia, Ontario and other provinces.

1. I don't think you can overdose on cannibis.
1a. There are currently thousands of strains.
1b. It would be tough to set up tests for effectiveness at that point. User feedback required.

2. No idea here...

Little reaction from the Netherlands, THC is the component that causes the high. This could be in the specs to start with. Each person reacts different though to THC. Dutch weed tends to be stronger (more THC) then other, which causes a lot of tourists in trouble. Quite a few international celebs that got knocked off their feet in Amsterdam.

Customer satisfaction surveys might be a bit over the top though with these products :biglaugh:

“Escort service”? Just about any Ford dealer can supply that………..or are you talking about something else? :biglaugh:

That would make for some pretty interesting process audits, eh?

“OK, show me how you measure customer satisfaction”.

Sorry fellars but as an auditor you are not allowed to participate in the process as you may sacrifice your objectivity. You are only allowed to observe. This may be tough in either case, bordello or hash factory.

No problem for me regarding the escorts or the hash but assign me to the Guinness or the Jameson factory and I am in trouble. I guess we all have our vices.
