World Quality Month
IAS joins ASQ in celebrating World Quality Month during the month of November.
World Quality Month was first introduced by ASQ in 2010. The main goal of World Quality Month is “to raise awareness of the quality, continuous improvement, and performance excellence field and quality professionals worldwide.” World Quality Month is also about understanding the impact quality has on the world, during business hours, in the community, and at home.
What is the relationship between accreditation and quality? Accreditation is a formal, independent verification that a program or institution meets established quality standards and is competent to carry out specific conformity assessment tasks. IAS has been providing accreditation services since 1975. Today IAS offers 20 accreditation programs for business and governmental bodies in numerous industries around the world.
