This standard, established by the International Organization for Standardization (ISO) is concerned with quality management in manufacturing and meeting customer, as well as other, regulatory requirements. The audits and certification of CardLogix was performed by Underwriters Lab, Inc., (UL) an independent, not-for-profit standards certification organization.

CardLogix President and CEO, Bruce Ross, commented that ISO quality approval is the culmination of many months of refinement of the company's internal systems. "We had many of the system components already in place, so that our recent efforts 'fine-tuned' the company to conform to this ISO standard". Ross stated that CardLogix has many years of experience manufacturing to similar, stringent standards for integrated circuits and smart cards. "Our customers already require the highest standards of quality, traceability and security. This important step dovetails with our primary objective of always exceeding customer expectations".
