Way back when, the primary quality document that we sold here at Document Center was the MIL-Q-9858, the military specification "Quality Program Requirements."  Along came MIL Spec reform and the MIL-Q-9858 was cancelled without replacement.  But that doesn't mean there's a lack of quality specs and standards to use...

And FYI: You'll be seeing more of the international management standards on quality being updated.  There is a move afoot to set up these management standards in a similar format.  This will enable companies that are certified to multiple quality schemes to streamline their processes, as the requirements become "harmonized."

If your company is registered for certification to ISO 9000, AS 9100, FDA Medical Device requirements, or any of the other management standards, you should consider making Document Center your standards provider.  We provide expert assistance in determining the editions and documents you need.  We monitor those standards to make sure your copies are up-to-date.  And we can assist you in spotting trends and new releases that will impact your business.
