QME - Quality Management Essentials

QME Management Systems Certification

Quality in all forms, from product manufacturing to customer service, under QME certification will improve a company's value, cost efficiency and customer relationship.

QME certification is granted to companies that demonstrate compliance and regulatory requirements with the ISO 9001 standard. PECB will provide you with this certification by demonstrating that your product or services meet the major criteria and is in conformance with ISO 9001. With this certification, which is a useful tool to add credibility, companies will show compliance to the specific clauses implemented in their management system, such as:

  • Being aware of the context of the organization
  • Proactively scanning their organization
  • Being able to react to a  crisis that  occurs
  • Communicating a positive message to staff and customers
  • Ensuring management’s support for the implementation
  • Determine and maintain required infrastructure
  • Planned and controlled processes
  • Providing product and service related information
  • Determine design stages considering activities such as verification and validation, control of design, design review, resources needed for design and development, etc.

What is QME about?

QME consists of the major clauses of ISO 9001, which allow different departments at a company to implement them with less direction from management and without risking the fundamental concepts of ISO 9001 structure. Implementing PECB’s QME framework and obtaining the certification for your organization is the right decision towards demonstrating the ability of practicing quality management and addressing the challenges involved in an efficient way.

The design objectives for this new certification scheme are:

  • Easy implantation steps
  • Committed to customer satisfaction
  • Ensuring confidentiality and impartiality
  • Reduced management involvement
  • Certifiable
