Six steps to your TL 9000 certificate

QuEST Forum developed the TL 9000 quality management system (QMS) in 1998 with the goal of satisfying the unique quality requirements of the worldwide telecommunications industry.

It only takes six steps to certify your company according to TL 9000:

  1. Preliminary audit (optional)
  2. Documentation review
  3. Certification audit
  4. Issuing the certificate
  5. Surveillance audits
