ISO 9001:2008 Preparation for Certification

Are you interested in securing new business in a highly competitive world? Is your company ISO registered? Our NM9000 program is the first step to help you prepare for ISO certification.

ISO 9001 is a quality management standard recognized by more than 170 countries and required by most major companies and governments in the United States, Mexico, Canada, Europe and Asia of its suppliers.

The New Mexico Economic Development Department (NMEDD) in collaboration with the New Mexico Manufacturing Extension Partnership (MEP) offers the ISO 9001 training to small businesses across the state at a low cost. Contact us for more information about the program.

For more information or to register, visit the NM9000 website.


The program was developed by two of the leading organizations that provide assistance to manufacturers – the MEP and the U.S. Export Assistance Centers of the U.S. Department of Commerce – and is offered in collaboration with numerous state trade offices and other regional partners throughout the country. The program involves a unique combination of group and individual work as well as personal coaching which allows companies to extract information that is critical to their export success.

Companies participate in three 1-day group session scheduled over a three-month period. Between each session, with the help of a coach, each company works on the development and implementation of their international growth plan. By the end of the program every company will have developed their own international growth plan and accelerated their export sales process.

  • Each session program is limited to six to eight companies, to ensure quality, personalized service and attention to each company.
  • Each company is assigned an experienced coach to provide focused, one-on-one support in the development and execution of their plants.
  • Experts are selected based on the specific needs of the participating companies to educate the entire group and provide one-on-one consultations.
  • Planning exercises and peer discussion are employed to help executives apply knowledge to their own companies.
  • To help them avoid costly mistakes and see new opportunities, in the final group session, each company’s plan will be reviewed and vetted by a panel of experienced international business people.
