2000 Registrar
Buyers Guide

by Brandi Floberg
and Laurel Thoennes


Welcome to Quality Digest's 2000 Registrar Buyers Guide. This one-stop guide serves as an excellent starting point in your journey toward compliance and 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 each company, the standards each is accredited to certify and the primary industries each company serves. The matrix, which is an Acrobat version 4 PDF file, can be download by clicking here. The directory includes the company's name, contact person, address, phone and fax numbers, a Web address, and a brief description of the company and the services it provides. All of the included information was provided by the registrars.

 As with all Quality Digest guides, the 2000 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 buyersguide@qualitydigest.com .
