ISO Offers E-mail Newsletter on Management Systems Standards

[Based on ISO press release]

New York, May 24, 2005

The International Organization for Standardization (ISO) has launched a new, free-of-charge e-mail newsletter providing concise information on ISO 9000 and ISO 14000 developments worldwide, as well as activities related to standards for the service sector and social responsibility.

Dubbed IMS Alerts after ISO's ISO Management Systems (IMS) magazine, the e-newsletter will carry advance news of upcoming articles in the magazine, such as recent surveys on the concrete results of implementing quality and environmental management systems based respectively on ISO 9001:2000 and ISO 14001. ISO Management Systems is published six times a year in English, French and Spanish editions, and includes coverage of implementation case studies from around the world.

ISO Secretary-General Alan Bryden commented: "The launching of the IMS Alerts e-newsletter is an example of ISO's forward-looking stance since it will make it easier for people to acquire early news of developments on the 'new frontiers' of ISO and its members - such as standards for services, management practice and social responsibility. It also shows our firm commitment to communication and to using IT to communicate more efficiently."

While the magazine is available by paid subscription, there is no charge for subscribing to the IMS Alerts e-newsletter. In addition to advance news of ISO Management Systems articles, subscribers to IMS Alerts will benefit from alerts to new ISO press releases and fresh material on ISO's website.

Subscription to IMS Alerts can be requested online via the ISO 9000/ISO 14000 section of the site, which has been completely redesigned and re-structured to make it both more attractive and easier for visitors to navigate to the information they need.
