Is there any difference between ANSI/ISO/ASQ Q9001:2008 and ISO 9001:2008? Is it just semantic, or is it ASQ’s take on ISO 9001:2008 Quality management systems–Requirements?
The ANSI designation shows it has been adopted as an American National Standard (ANS), and that U.S. experts believe the standard is a good one and should be followed by the U.S. Since ASQ is the administrator of the group (known as a Technical Advisory Group/TAG in the standards development world) that develops ISO 9001, we are the only organization allowed to put its name in the designation. ASQ is a member of ANSI and is accredited by them to be a standards-developing organization.
