ISO 9000 (year 2000 version) vs QS 9000

Currently, we are going for QS 9000 (under ISO 9002 : 1994 edition). However, we will be required to convert to ISO 9002 : 2000 edition soon. Appreciate if you could advise what will be the changes and will it be major since we are having QS 9000 system.

Thanks alot.

As far as I am concerned, there will be no QS updating to the 2000 version of ISO 9001. The one that will be updated is ISO 16949.
This is why General motors is encouranging suppliers to go for ISO 16949 instead of QS 9000 in the next surveillance audit they have. For more info check [1] and [2]
I would recommend you to go for ISO 16949, instead of QS9000, it looks that soon or late you will have to do it, specially if you have automotive customers other than the B3.
According to references [3] and [4], the developers of ISO/TS 16949:1999, the International Automotive Task Force (IATF), has announced that the next revision to the standard will be aligned with ISO 9001:2000.
Reference [5] indicates that the IATF has begun work with the ISO TC176 committees to revise the ISO/TS 16949 so as to align it with ISO 9001:2000 ; a resulting product release is expected in 2Q 2001.
According to reference [6], Stephen Walsh, Manager of Q1 Re-engineering for Ford Automotive Operations announced that the IATF is busy trying to align the new international auto standard (ISO/TS 16949:1999) with the Year 2000 revisions of ISO 9000. He expects an updated document that aligns both families of standards by the end of 2001.
According to reference [7], ISO/TS 16949 (together with the appropriate company specific requirements) is believed will replace QS-9000 in the future. As reference [8] also indicates, the release of ISO/TS 16949 aligned with ISO 9001:2000 will replace QS 9000 3rd ed. and the other European Standards.
As stated in reference [1], Ford, GMC and Daimlerchrysler are all strongly recommending that organisations consider upgrading to TS 16949 during surveillance audits.

What does your customer require? I should go for QS9000. The reason is very simple. There are no dramatic differences between QS and TS but QS is much cheaper. You only have to pay the B3 and ISO for QS9000. For TS you have to pay three organizations more. It will save you a lot of money. About three years you have to upgrade to TS but for now you can save money.

Eugene - what do you mean that you have to pay 3 more organizations to register to TS?
