Putting Individual Skills to Work for the Customer


AV9000 Compliance provides the first level of evidence to a buyer that the AV Company is applying Quality Management in the services it provides and is meant to be a stepping stone to AV9000 Certification.


Individual skills and certifications are of course a necessity for assuring quality, but without Quality Management in the AV Company's internal processes, there is no assurance of consistency in what the Company provides.  AV9000 Compliance goes beyond individual skills.  It verifies that there is some evidence that those individual skills are being applied in a manner to assure that the buyer is getting what was ordered.


AV9000 Compliance is rapidly becoming a requirement for more and more buyers of AV Technology.
