I've had my fill of the BS involved with ISO 9001. The only thing it
did for us was stagnate every process and procedure till nothing got
updated. It was hard enough to get three levels above you to listen and
agree that there was a problem. After certification they were afraid to
fix anything because they were sure they would look bad to the auditor
for admitting they made a mistake in the first place.
Then they hired some idiot weasel to admin. the ISO process and
appointed him to the head of QC. I had to threaten to go to the
president of the company to get a major safety problem corrected. I
heard later that he asked my boss and the head of production if I had
the guts to do it. They laughed in his face and told him that I rarely
gave warnings, and never did it twice.
ISO 9001 is good in theory, but in practice it leaves a HELL of a lot
to be desired.
