This is just a cut and paste job at the moment. I have found a page from the current Quality World magazine available online. There are several comments about the future of quality and I have found links for the academic bases. I am interested in where this is happening. I get the impression that quality is not widely studied in UK business schools but maybe it is just hard to find the links.

There are two PDF files that turned up. there may be more later when I check out more around these sites. Both mention ISO 9000 . There may be more academic content during the discussion on the revision. ISO 9000 is not very exciting as an academic topic but it remains an issue. see the blog post by Juhani Anttila.
