ISO/TC 176 is Technical Committee 176 of the International Organization for Standardization (ISO), responsible for Quality management and quality assurance - the ISO 9000 family of standards.

Overview[edit]

The scope of the committee is ‘Standardization in the field of quality management (generic quality management systems and supporting technologies), as well as quality management standardization in specific sectors at the request of the affected sector and the ISO Technical Management Board’.

Membership is open to any national body, in much the same way as membership in either of the two parent organizations. A member can be either participating (P) or observing (O) and the difference is mainly the ability to vote on proposed standards and other products. Other organizations participate as Liaison Members, some internal to ISO and IEC and some external. There is no requirement for any member body to maintain either (or any) status on all of the sub-committees. Sub-committees, working groups, task groups and other bodies can be created to deal with new situations or disbanded if the area of work is no longer relevant.
