Registered or Certified

What is the proper terminology?

QS 9000/ISO 9001 Registered or Certified?

I think Registered is correct, just wantto know what the experts say.

thanks tim

This is a very old debate. I used to argue that 'registered' was the correct term. That term was used by the British, mostly. But - most registrars will say they 'certify' companies. I gave up arguing about which is correct.

I agree that this is a very old debate, that's why I take the easy way out and look at the first paragraph under the section II customer requirements where they use the word register. (QS-9000 3rd Edition)

It's all just semantics in my opinion.

Our "Certificate", "certifies", and lists a "certification date", so according to our registrar, we are certifiable (hey, aren't we all?).

However, when I attended my lead auditor training from a different company, we were taught specifically to use the term "registered".

Im so confused! But then again, I am registered as certifiable.

I like a certain level of confusion. It keeps food on my table so I don't have to get a real job! :)

either "registered" or "certified" is correct. what matters here is how you will use them. it is not proper to say that a company is "iso900x/qs9000 certified". neither ISO nor QS certifies a company. it is the certification body who certified companies. therefore saying (for example) "BVQI Certified to ISO900x/QS9000" is more appropriate.

Some of these discussions do make me chuckle!

Here's my twopenniesworth;

If you are registered you must be on a register. If you are certfied you must have a certificate. So, in my humble opinion you are certified by and registered with the certification body.
