For those of you unfamiliar with the term BSI it is the “the business standards company that helps organisations make excellence a habit”, established to develop “a new generation of standards” by helping manufacturing organisations to “improve their performance, reduce their risk and help them be more sustainable.” To this day there are 1200 BSI committees operating to achieve just that. At Hypro, our very own Quality Manager Rob Daniels has joined BSI Committee QS/001/02 Quality Management System Standards.
The scope of QS/001/02 Quality Management System Standards is as follows:
“Under the direction of QS/1, is responsible for the UK input into the revision and development of quality management standards and guidelines, including drafting, comment resolution and nominating delegates to international meetings.” This process ensures that proposed new standards or updated standards are discussed and reviewed in detail to ensure the standards are as concise, clear and easy to follow as possible in which an international delegation make final amendments.
Rob Daniels attended his first meeting with the BSI Committee in July earlier this year where the ISO9004 and ISO10005 were reviewed in order to provide UK comments and suggestions for the release of the new revisions, expected to be published before the end of the year.
Further information regarding the ISO9004 and ISO10005 can be found on the following links
Being part of the committee provides the opportunity for Rob to be involved in the quality management systems standards for UK manufacturing. This not only provides Rob with a greater understanding of the standards and requirements of SME’s but also an opportunity for Rob to provide a voice for SME’s, what is needed, what could be improved and so on.
This direct involvement will benefit Hypro as Rob generates a deeper understanding of the standards throughout the training that is available to all committee members allowing Rob to develop in his role as quality manager.
We wish Rob all the luck for his voluntary position within the BSI Committee and we look forward to seeing and hearing the contributions that Rob has made.
