Answer:

ISO 9001 and ISO 17020 have little in common since they cover completely different areas. ISO 17020 is contains requirements for the competence of bodies performing inspection and for the impartiality and consistency of their inspection activities while ISO 9001 specifies requirements for a quality management system. ISO 9001 can be used by organization to meet requirements in 8.2 to 8.8 of ISO/IEC 17020 but only when the QMS covers the activities of the inspection body.
