HISTORY OF QUALITY STANDARDS AND ISO9001
From 1939 to 1945, we experienced World War II. It was the biggest and deadliest war in history, involving more than 30 countries.
On May 8, 1945 the end of WWII was declared as ‘Victory in Europe Day’ by then serving British Prime Minister, Mr Winston Churchill. Thus, enabling business ventures to rise again with trading between countries, regions and companies to flourish and gain greater importance.
To enable countries to rise again, trading between companies, region and countries was important.
In 1946, Churchill proposed the concept of “United States of Europe” to cluster the region and have ease of trade. However, due to the lack of equally distributed expertise between the European countries, businesses were having inconsistencies in the quality of production of goods and delivery of their services. Quality standards were diverse among different regions and countries, showing there was a need for a single standard.
The organisation which today is known as ISO began in 1926 as the International Federation of the National Standardizing Associations (ISA), focusing primarily on mechanical engineering, was disbanded in 1942 during the second World War.
In 1946 there were a group of delegates from 25 countries that came together under a unified goal contracted to create a non-binding quality standard. This body was renamed as the International Organisation for Standardization (ISO) and is in the business of writing relevant standards where it is observed that organisations have benefited from using a single formula across various industries.
In 2015, there was a revision to the standard. The aim was to create the core of the quality standards within every international standard that is available on the market. Since then, the Quality Management Standard is identified as ISO 9001:2015.
