10.2: CORRESTPNDENCE BETWEEN ISO 9001:1994 AND ISO 9001:2000
The International ISO 9000:1994 series of standards has been established and is based on the British Standard 5750:1987 series, European Standard EN 29000:1987 series, and Inter national Standard ISO 9000:1987 series. The third edition of ISO 9001 cancels and replaces the second edition (ISO 9000:1994) together with ISO 9002:1994 and ISO 9003:1994. It constitutes a revision of these documents. Those organizations that have used ISO 9002:1994 and ISO 9003:1994 in the past may use this revised international standard by excluding certain requirements in accordance with Clause 1.2 of ISO 9001:2000. It should be noted that where the exclusives in sub-clause 1.2 of ISO/FDIS 9001:2000 are exceeded, conformity to ISO/FDIS 9001:2000 shall not be cleared. All requirements of the revised standard are generic and are applicable to all organizations, regardless of type, size, and products offered. If any requirements of this international standard cannot be applied due to the nature of an organization, its products can be considered for exclusion.
