2001 Registrar Buyers Guide
by Jesse Jones and Laurel Thoennes


Welcome to Quality Digest's 2001 Registrar Buyers Guide. This one-stop guide serves as an excellent starting point for your journey toward compliance and/or registration.

 The guide consists of a directory of ISO 9000, QS-9000, TE Supplement, AS9000, ISO 14000, CE Mark and TL 9000 registrars, as well as a matrix that lists the year each company was established, the standards to which each registrar offers certification and the primary industries each company serves. The directory includes the company's name, contact person, address, phone and fax numbers, and Web address. All of the information included was provided by the registrars.

Download the matrix by clicking here. Requires Adobe Acrobat

As with all Quality Digest guides, the 2001 Registrar Buyers Guide is in no way meant to endorse or exclude any particular organization. Rather, it's meant to be used as the starting point in the data-gathering process. Readers are encouraged to contact the companies directly for more information and to ask for—and check—references.

 We appreciate any feedback on our buyers guides. If you have a suggestion for how we can improve this buyers guide for next year, e-mail it to .
