Hi,
Can anyone tell what does the term "Normative reference" in ISO 9001 2000 Means?

All this is saying is that ISO 9000:2000 is a reference document. Think of ISO 9000 as you did the old 'definitions' document. It is, in a way, a link. One may say it is a foundation. The title of ISO 9000 is: QUALITY MANAGEMENT SYSTEMS - FUNDAMENTALS nad VOCABULARY

NORMATIVE:
Definition 1. of, pertaining to, or prescribing a law, standard, or norm, esp. with regard to correctness in speaking, writing, or behavior.
Crossref. Syn. ╩ standard

REFERENCE:
╩Definition 1. the act or process of referring.
╩ ╩Synonyms ╩ referral (1)
╩ ╩Crossref. Syn. ╩ relation
╩ ╩Definition 2. an allusion.
╩ ╩Synonyms ╩ mention (1) , allusion
╩ ╩Definition 3. a source of information.
╩ ╩Example ╩ She is a good reference on computer matters ; We go to the library to look up references.

Bottom line is you should be looking at ISO 9000, ISO 9001 and ISO 9004 as a group.

The reality is most companies buy and consider ISO 9001 and that's it. Few buy and read ISO 9000 and ISO 9004 as well.

As it was explained to me (by our registrar) during transition training - The normative reference ISO 9000:2000 (fundamentals/vocabulary) must be used in conjunction with the standard itself - meaning the terminology specified is NOT open for interpretive discussion.
