ISO 9000 Quality Management
The U. S. Coast Guard's Mission Management System (MMS) is an ISO 9000-based quality management system that was created to ensure fulfillment of national and international obligations for marine safety and security. At the outset of the mariner credentialing program centralization effort, the National Maritime Center (NMC) adopted and incorporated the MMS into its operation. The NMC has maintained compliance with ISO 9001:2008 standards and will
become compliant with 9001:2015 standards before September 2018.
