The purpose of the validation audit project was to gather data to enable QuEST Forum to confirm the integrity of the TL 9000 certification process. This two-year project included one-day audits, each conducted by two independentauditors, used to assure and confirm the integrity of the TL 9000 3rd partycertification process. The Validation Audit Project was approved by the QuEST Forum membership in a December 2009 vote.
Organizations evaluated were chosen at random, while ensuring worldwide coverage. Participation in the one-time project by the selected organizations was a requirement to maintain TL 9000 certification.
