Quality Standards

Tunisia is currently embracing ISO 9000 standards. The National Institute for Standardization and Industrial Property (INNORPI) is responsible for establishing national standards and has instituted ISO 14000 certification procedures. European Union consultants, working with INNORPI, completed a three-year program to fully develop ISO 9000 norms in 1998 in conjunction with the government's mise a niveau program. Several firms in the industrial sector have already achieved ISO 9000 or 9002 certification.
