Quality management and environmental protection do pay off
Many reasons, which are also corroborated statistically, speak for establishing a quality management system. Thanks to modern management systems, the right things can be done at the right time by using the right resources. In concrete terms, this implies intensified customer focus, process approach within the organization, cost savings and good housekeeping with resources, increase in people motivation and a resulting traceable increase in the corporate value.
Additional background information
By late 2006, little less than one million organizations had been certified acc. to ISO 9001:2000. This series of standards has succeeded in establishing the features of organizational quality as a world-wide standard independently from the sectors and for the companies of all sizes. The ISO 9001:2000 Standard aims at using uniform terminology. Such terms as “requirement”, “customer satisfaction”, “product”, “process”, “system”, “quality” and “quality improvement” are defined internationally and thus become comparable. The four basic modules of the ISO 9001:2000 standard are:
- Management responsibility
- Resource responsibility
- Product realization
- Measurement, analysis and improvement
For all the organizations, the implementation of the improvement cycle “Plan-Do-Check-Act” should be in the center of interest when applying the ISO 9001:2000 Standard.
- Plan: establishing objectives of quality management;
- Do: implementing the projects and activities according to planning;
- Check: reviewing implementation for the extent to which the target variables have been achieved;
- Act: If the programme has not adequately been implemented or target variables have not been achieved, corrective or preventive action will have to be taken.
The goal of environmental management acc. to ISO 14001:2004 is to promote environmental protection and prevent adverse environmental impacts and pollution in harmony with socio-economic requirements. Just like ISO 9001:2000, ISO 14001:2004 is based on the idea of making processes controllable by means of management systems. Instead of specifying the contents, ISO 14001:2004 trusts in the steering effect of management systems that work well. For all the organizations, the implementation of the improvement cycle “Plan-Do-Check-Act” should be in the center of interest when applying the ISO 14001:2004 Standard.
