WYLE LABORATORIES WINS ISO 9000 REGISTRATION DIRECTLY LINKED TO THE EUROPEAN COMMUNITY

 EL SEGUNDO, Calif., Feb. 18 /PRNewswire/ -- Wyle Laboratories' (NYSE: WYL) Electronics Marketing Group has received the coveted ISO 9000 Registration at its Santa Clara, Calif., location, after a thorough review and rigorous field audit of its total quality system performed by Intertek Services Corp. of Fairfax, Va.
 Unlike other registrars working through the American Registration Accreditation Board which has yet to be fully recognized by the European Community, or others working under memorandums of understanding with European registrars, Intertek has direct ties to the European Community through its registration with the Dutch Council for Certification (Raad voor de Certificatie). As such, Wyle's ISO 9000 registration is recognized throughout the E.C., and Wyle's Santa Clara location has the right to use the Registrar's official logo on all of its packaging, forms, business cards and other printed materials.
 Ralph L. Ozorkiewicz, Wyle's president and chief operating officer, said: "We're pleased that our total quality system has been officially certified by an international registrar after having fully met the most exacting global standards. To our knowledge, we are the first distributor in our industry to be certified by a registrar directly linked to the European Community.
 "With the coming integration of Europe, companies doing business in the E.C. will be required to make certain that their subcontractors and suppliers comply with ISO requirements. Our customers may be confident that Wyle has earned the prestigious registration recognized throughout Europe."
 Intertek's review of Wyle's quality system included an examination of its quality assurance policy and procedures to determine the adequacy of documentation and its full compliance with ISO 9002 standards for manufacturing and warehousing. The registrar then conducted a field audit and verification of the commercial and military warehouse, and the Integrated Design Engineering and Logic (IDEAL(R)) center, including extensive employee interviews.
 The registration process includes 18 elements such as calibration, contract and management reviews, process controls, quality management reviews and senior management involvement.
 "The ISO 9000 series registration requires ongoing reviews every six months and represents a major commitment to continuous improvement. As such, it exemplifies Wyle's dedication to world class standards and total customer satisfaction," Ozorkiewicz said.
 Wyle Laboratories is one of the nation's leading marketers of high-technology electronic products, specializing in semiconductors, computer systems and related value-added services. The company is also a major supplier of research, engineering, testing and support services to the aerospace, defense and energy industries.
