How long does it take to implement ISO 9000?
Implementing a quality management system from start to finish usually takes a minimum of six months. However, it should be noted that the size of an organization plays a role in the time consumed to implement such a system. Thus, the larger the organisation, and the more complex the process, the longer it will take. 14 months seems to be the average time the process takes from start to finish. It can take up to double that time if organisations attempt doing it without the assistance of experts.
