In 1994, US automakers issued a new, cooperative set of quality standards for their suppliers: QS-9000. The standards are specific to the auto industry and are rigorous in their demands. QS-9000 registrars must be accredited by an organization recognized by the US automakers. NSF-ISR is accredited by ANSI/RAB and the Dutch Council for Accreditation, RvA. NSF and NSF-ISR provide third party services to companies and other organizations around the world. Unlike registrars who operate as subsets of larger and more diverse organizations, all of NSF and NSF-ISR's energies are focused on performing standardization, auditing and assessment services.
