Typically, organizations get certified to satisfy customer requirements or expectations. If that is the case here, the customers should be the ones identifying the standards that they expect the supplier to be certified to. If the certification drive, on the other hand, is self imposed, ISO 9001 would be the most natural selection.

I am guessing if they have no customer/regulatory requirements, they can have whatever quality system they want to maintain.

Do they currently have a quality system? Why are they interested in registration?

The advice given above is correct. I would also be looking at product approval schemes recognized in their target markets and, possibly, specialized accredited registrars in the building products industry.

I would vote for "none" unless there is a compelling reason to do so. Use of ISO 9001-2000 as a basis for quality system development never hurt anyone, though.

Jim,

I am surprised that you would state "none". Would it not be beneficial to register to ISO 9001, so that they could reap the rewards of continuous improve and thereby become stronger within their market?

I don't want to start yet another registration-or-not flame war, but I think that it's entirely possible to "reap the rewards of continuous* improvement" without registration. Keep in mind that I did say that registration is OK (imo) if there's a compelling reason for it.

*By the way, the proper word is "continualous." :notme:

Jim is correct. Very few organizations (relatively speaking) benefit from registration. Few also benefit from implementation. However, the OP's question was SPECIFFICALLY what standard to get REGISTERED to. So, the OP is not asking about implementation and benefits to derive from implementation and registration.

Sidney,

I am aware of what the op was specifically asking.

I was just simply questioning the reason behind "none", as the conventional wisdom seems to be that certification is the answer to all of one ills'.

Thanks, Rich. But most people who are really familiar with the management system certification process, knows that not to be the case.
