  • Consistency Yields Efficiency and Effectiveness
  • Least Cost Approach
    • Avoids Multiple Registrations by Multiple Registrars
    • Enables Ongoing Audits to Proceed According to Sampling Plan
challenges with our approach
Challenges with Our Approach
  • Significant Worldwide Coordination Required
  • Would be Very Difficult to Integrate with Existing ISO 9000 Registrations
  • Single Registrar Expects a Well-Structured, Mature, and Consistent EMS at all IBM Locations -- Even those that are New in the Business
current results
Current Results
  • Earned First Edition of Worldwide Registration in December, 1997
    • Supported by successful registration audits at 11 of 26 (original number) locations plus Corporate Environmental Affairs staff
