A family of standards approved by the International Standards Organization (ISO) that define a quality assurance program. Companies that conform to these standards can receive ISO 9000 certification. This doesn’t necessarily mean that the company’s products have a high quality; only that the company follows well-defined procedures for ensuring quality products. Increasingly, software buyers are requiring ISO 9000 certification from their suppliers.
