Our approach to quality culture

EVERYONE has a responsibility for maintaining and enhancing the quality of the product or service.

Quality assurance requires a whole-institution approach for a transformation to quality involving top-level commitment, followed by substantial and comprehensive involvement of all personnel.

The transformation requires time, effort, and willingness of everyone in the institution to change to a culture which is quality-driven and ever-improving.
