Hi There,
We are an ISO9001 Certified company. We are planning to upgrade from the 1994 Edition to 2000 Edition. Now there were a lot certifying bodies out there. And it would be a competition to each one of them. Previously we used to stick to one certifying body. Now, I'm planning to entertain each one of them. My concern is:
How am I gonna evaluate this certifying body? What are the criteria that i need to consider? Was it cost? quality of their service? How am i gonna evaluate their quality of service, since we are the one to be certified? Am I gonna evaluate them just like a supplier that offer a service, e.g. service provider. Please help.
Any feedback would be appreciated.
Thanks in advance,

Marc has a excellent "how to choose a registrar" file in the FTP section. Take a look around the rest of the site.

I think the more important issue would be the auditor, not the registrar. We put together a list of questions, mostly related to interpretation, and interviewed the auditors first.

In some instances I already knew the auditors and were indepedents and in other cases I contacted the registrar and asked them to send an auditor from their staff for our interview.

In the end we found an independent that contracted out to different registrars. He was very good in directing us to potential registrars that would fit our business structure, and steering us away from registrars that would not.

As I had worked with the auditor we choose in the past, I didn't lead his interview. In the end, the steering committee made the choice by vote. (welllll, maybe I subconciously "swayed" the individual steering committee members )

Just a thought.
