ISO 9000 / 14000 Standards Developement
Gossman Consulting Inc. (GCI) personnel have been involved with the writing of facility, laboratory, hazardous materials and compliance operating procedures throughout our working life. Consequently it should be no surprise that GCI offers our services in developing ISO 9000 or 14000 standards for our clients. The ISO (International Standards Orgaization) standards embody a number of "standards of practice" that are recognized throughout the world. Two of these, ISO 9000 and ISO 14000 are having an increasing impact on the U. S. corporations doing business in the global marketplace.
ISO 9000 is a series of standards on product quality control. These standards can be applied to a service as well as hard goods. GCI has assisted a client in developing an ISO 9002 standard for the operation of a hazardous waste fuel supply facility in the U. K. In our global economy the implimentation of an ISO 9000 standard will facilitate acceptance of your goods or services worldwide. The ISO 14000 standards are a series of environmental management standards; essentially they are quality standards like the ISO 9000 series but aimed exclusively at environmental management. A comprehensive understanding of the existing federal and local regulations alone will not be sufficient background for the developement of an ISO 14000 standard. Development of such a standard requires a full and practical understanding of operations, environmental testing technologies and data management, to name a few of the areas encompassed by these standards. It is here where GCI's extensive experience can be most useful to our clients in developing such standards.
