1999 Registrar Buyers Guide

Welcome to Quality Digest's 1999 Registrar Buyers Guide. This one-stop guide serves as an excellent starting point in your ISO 9000, QS-9000, AS 9000 and ISO 14000 journey.

The guide consists of a directory of accredited registrars following this introduction and a matrix that lists the year each company was established, the standard(s) each is accredited to certify 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 the information was provided by the registrars.

The matrix is in PDF format and can be downloaded by clicking here. If you don´t have the Acrobat reader required to read PDF files, you can download it by clicking on the following icon:


As with all Quality Digest guides, the 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 on how we can improve this buyers guide for next year, e-mail it to buyersguide@qualitydigest.com .
