Harrisburg, PA-We don't usually report on stories about company certification
to ISO standards because, just like navels, everyone's got 'em.
But here is a new one. Tyco Electronics says three of its North American
units (29 sites and 13,000 employees) are the first organizations in the world
certified to TL 9000, Release 3.0 and ISO 9001: 2000. TL 9000 defines the
telecommunications quality system for design, production, delivery,
installation, and maintenance of products and services. In addition to basic ISO
requirements, TL 9000 includes telecommunications industry-specific requirements
and prescribed measurements that are based on the nature of the suppliers
The Tyco Electronics organizations certified are the Global Industrial
Commercial, Global Communications, Computer and Consumer Electronics, and Global
Application Tooling business units.
