I was once very impressed with ISO9000 Registration, however, after witenessing registration "given", by one of the largest Registrars in the WORLD, to an organization that falsifies records on an hourly basis my respect for the standard was reduced to ZERO. This is to silly...people actually worry about "passing"? I would think it would be harder to find a competent auditor than not. The auditor in question actually did not audit the largest function (over 60%) of this organization because, and I quote, "I will check it next time". A single auditor audited the organization of which I speak in 3.5 DAYS...the organization is HUGE (covers several square miles) and multifaceted. Is this unusuall? Appearantly not. This has to be the most lucrative joke since the Pet Rock. If I ever own a large company - I will refuse to obtain ISO registration - but I will gladly justify my position and provide any potential customer with the documented evidence of "this" incident.
