ITS Quality management system registration program registers organizations whose quality management systems conform to international quality standards, such as the International Organization of Standardization (ISO) 9000 series. The new ISO 9001:2000 standard was developed by an international body of quality management system experts and was officially released in December 2000. Qualifying for registration is an extensive process, taking at least six months and up to two years to complete detailed audits and evaluations of documentation and processes. Choice Reefer Systems Limited original audit took place on June 3, 2002 and was conducted by Nigel Young-Chin, an auditor from Intertek Testing Services NA Ltd. of Mississauga, Ontario
