Subject:STC Meeting, ISO 9000 (Tucson, AZ) From:"Nancy S. Burns" <burns -at- NOAO -dot- EDU> Date:Wed, 8 Nov 1995 08:48:21 -0700
Join us in Tucson for an STC (Society for Technical Communication) meeting
about ISO 9000 on Wednesday, Nov. 15.
ISO 9000 standards were developed by the International Organization of
Standardization as a uniform standard for quality that could be adopted by
any country for conducting business in Europe. Competitive pressures have
pushed many companies in the U.S. to become certified.
Paul Burck, a certified lead assessor, will talk about the technical
writer's role in achieving ISO 9000 compliance in the workplace, answer
questions about how you can help your company pass the ISO audit, and give
examples of documentation that meet ISO 9000 standards.
