Well known standards include the ISO 9000 series, the ISO 14000 series related to environmental performance, the ISO 10000 series, and the QS 9000 series related to the automotive industry. These standards have been adopted in over 100 countries and ensure that consumers can purchase items from different manufacturers and know those items will perform equally.
