Misunderstanding ISO 9001
Quality Digest
The original version of ISO 9001 was very clearly intended as audit criteria.

Two separate things and government departments/ministers especially, often fail to appreciate the differences. Better oversight must come from a better understanding of how certification and auditing thereof works.
