Term: ASQ

The American Society for Quality (ASQ) was formed in 1946 as the "American Society for Quality Control." With members in more than 120 countries, and its World Partner and Strategic Alliance international programs, it is the world's leading authority on quality. ASQ members use time-tested methods and processes to improve work in Education, Government, Healthcare, Manufacturing, and Service. ASQ's Standards Committee is involved in standards related to "quality management" through the ISO 9000 family of standards; "environmental management," through the ISO 14000 family of standards; the application of statistical methods through ISO/TC 69; and social responsibility through the ISO/Technical Management Board/Working Group on Social Responsibility.
