Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
Written by a principal and co-owner of a consulting firm that does business here and abroad, this convenient guide features information on standards essential to trade partners and export marketers, including ISO 9000, CE Mark, QS-9000, SSM, ISO 14000, Q 9000, and others. In addition to reviewing the historical development of national standards and explaining the U.S. Standards System, this book discusses various standards-setting institutions, certification bodies, registrars, consultants, program qualifications, restrictions, compliance, documentation, and regulations. Despite the title, the placement of appendixes after each chapter limits the book's usefulness for ready-reference purposes. For example, the U.S. Industry-Related Standards Organizations by acronym are grouped separately from international counterparts because national and international organizations are covered in different chapters. Bibliographic references are limited to several per chapter and do not include electronic sources, although ISO Online is mentioned. For larger public library, corporate, and academic collections.-Elizabeth Connor, Univ. of Connecticut Health Ctr. Lib., Farmington
A concise guide for company managers in any industry to all the major quality standards.
