ISO 9001:2000 Developers Honored With Award

Published: Monday, October 4, 2004 - 21:00

ISO recently awarded the subcommittee responsible for developing ISO 9001:2000 with the prestigious Lawrence D. Eicher Leadership Award.

In presenting the award, ISO President Oliver Smoot praised ISO/TC 176, which developed the standard, for its “rigorous and demanding” project management throughout the development process. Charles Corrie, secretary to the subcommittee, accepted the award for his colleagues.

“On behalf of all of ISO, I am pleased to present the award certificate and offer our congratulations and thanks for the work accomplished efficiently, effectively and harmoniously,” Smoot remarked. He also congratulated the subcommittee “for having one of the highest rates of participation for developed and developing countries, all of whom benefit from the support of an excellent secretariat.”

The British Standards Institution holds the secretariat of the subcommittee, which is chaired by John Davies. There are 68 representatives on ISO/TC 176 (59 participants and nine observers). The recommendation to honor the subcommittee was made by ISO’s Technical Management Board, which received eight nominations from member bodies last April.

The Lawrence D. Eicher Leadership Award was set up in 2002 by ISO to honor the memory of the late Dr. Lawrence D. Eicher, who was ISO’s secretary-general from 1986 to 2002.
