ISO - International Organization for Standardization

  • ISO is a worldwide federation of national standards bodies from some 130 countries, one from each country. ANSI is the United States' representative to ISO. ISO's mission is to promote the development of standardization and related activities worldwide with a view to facilitating the international exchange of goods and services. ISO publishes and distributes the ISO 9000 and 14000 standards.
  • The ISO 9000 series is used worldwide as an international standard for quality assurance and quality control.  We have one of the standards in this series: ISO / IEC 9001:2015: Quality management systems: requirements. Health Sciences Library Book Collection HD 62.15 Q1 2015
  • The ISO 14000 series applies to environmental management systems. We do not have these standards in our collections.
  • In this country, the ISO 9000 and 14000 series have been issued by the American Society for Quality Control . The downtown Buffalo & Erie County Public Library may own or have access to these sets of standards.
  • For more information on ISO standards, see ISO Online, which provides access to an online catalog of ISO standards that can be searched by title word and standard number. Ordering information is also provided. ISO standards can also be ordered through ANSI.
