What is TL 9000?

TL 9000 is a quality management system designed to meet supply chain requirements of the telecommunication industry. The system is intended to ensure quality by defining system requirements central to design, development, production, delivery, deployment and maintenance of telecommunications products and services. It also provides a measurement system for tracking performance and improving results.

TL 9000 certification eliminates the need for multiple quality management standards, making it a one-stop solution for telecoms industry providers who are looking to demonstrate their commitment to quality standards.

Benefits of TL 9000 certification

Adopting the TL 9000 management system allows your company to demonstrate its compliance to the high standards required by the ICT and telecommunication industry. It also aids in the validation of the quality of your processes, products and services. TL 9000 enables your company to create value for customers and stakeholders through continuous improvement, strategic partnerships and high standards achieved through a solid measurement system.

Many buyers demand suppliers of equipment to be TL 9000 certified as this provides assurance that their products are dependable – TL 9000 certification is therefore essential for selling to these businesses.
