Gentelman and Ladies!
I am new to this forum and currently a student. We all discuss , how to get certified its advantages and dis advantages and so on.

I was thinking other way around and I need your help in this regards.I am writing assignment for my final year papers.

Scenario
If a Company is ISO certified for years, and decides to move out of ISO standards ( for any imaginable or unimaginable reason).

What all changes it has to make in terms of its product literature, logos etc. so that its not violtating any possible rules of the market ?

I hope to hear from all learend people here.

thanks

It has to remove all references to being an ISO 9001 registered company.

Thanks for reply, does that mean. This hypothetical company can still use all its logos, business cards, product literatrature etc. but cant use the phrase ofbeing Iso 9001:2000 certified?

If I were to look for official guidlines in thi s regards, where should i start? or any useful refrences.

Thanks

If this hypothetical company decides to give up the ISO certification , it cannot use anymore the ISO certification symbols , but it can continue to use its own logo on visit card, paper and so on.
The regulations of the use of ISO symbol is regulated by a contract between the Certification Body ( the recognized Body that certifies a company) and the compaby itself.:bigwave:

Take a look at your agreement with your registrar. It's usual to inform them that you do not want to continue with their services. They will request their certificate(s) to be returned and probably advise you about use of logos etc.

I have seen companies change their literature from ISO certified to ISO compliant and keep the systems in place but do not pay for a registrar to audit them. This I do look down on. :mad:

I have seen some companies use the phase "modeled after" ISO in their literature.

My dealing with organizations, that I audited for my organization, and the OEM, that wanted there product or produtcs. This required a second party audit and all they had to do was to meet or be ISO compliant. We had letters from the OEM's authorizing this. In the Commerical World, this is legal and you are allowed to say ISO Compliant, but not certified. This does require a annual audit every year to insure compliance to this issue.
