The Next Generation of QMS Based on ISO 9001...
Organizations face issues related to sustainability with a global focus. These issues need to be addressed. Often, implementing and maintaining a Quality Management System (QMS) is viewed as just added work in a dynamic business environment. However, successful organizations find that a QMS that is flexible enough to conform to a variety of standards, while maintaining its focus on the customer, pays off at the end.
The Committee that writes the ISO 9000 standards is reviewing and considering revising them to assure they are dynamic and sustainable to aid organizations in the future. The ISO 9000 series is designed to go hand in hand with other standards, such as ISO 14001.
The twenty-first annual ISO 9000 Conference has been structured to provide a leading edge program, with presentations from corporate Executives and Management System experts, who are the world’s leading experts on QMS. The presentations are focused on: sector-specific implementation; general Management System topics; and real-life examples of integrating standards into a Management System.
With an exciting, leading-edge program of topics and international speakers, this year’s conference provides an unparalleled opportunity to network and learn how to take your Quality Management System to the next generation.
We look forward to seeing you in San Diego, CA.
