ISO Certification Introduction:
The concept of ISO has been originated from the union of two the organizations being firstly the International Federation of the National Standardizing Associations(ISO), and secondly the United Nations Standard of the Coordinating Committee(UNSCC).
Wherein, In 1946 over more than 25 countries have met at the “Institute of Civil Engineers” in London in order to create a new international organization in which the main objective was to “facilitate the international coordination of industrial standards”, and to achieve this goal a new organization ISO came into picture and began its operations in February 1947. The term ISO has been derived from the Greek ISOS which means ‘equal’. The term “ISO” stands for -International Organization for Standardization. Today the ISO has grown to the delegates where it is representing over 150 countries and has also published over more than 16,000 international standards. They meet on a regular basis to further develop new and existing management standards.
