  • Abstract:
    This paper examines the success factors for the implementation of ISO9000 in the Hong Kong construction industry. The critical factors for construction contractors to successfully implement ISO9000 were identified. An analytic hierarchy process model was then developed to determine the relative importance among those factors. The findings showed that the top management commitment is the most critical factor for the successful ISO9000 implementation, whilst the common goal, teamworking, education and training, and the cultural changes are also the important factors.
