by Christine Alston-Roberts, PDA

World Management

PDA announces the launch of our sixth standard. Currently, PDA seeks volunteer participants to assist in developing, writing and fine tuning the proposed Standard 06-201x, Quality Culture Assessment Tool (new standard).

This standard incorporates PDA’s comprehensive Quality Culture Assessment Tool and Training, designed to guide companies to a better understanding of quality culture, strategies to assess it and the actions necessary improve it. The tool helps a company effectively collect verifiable data that will help them to assess their culture at all levels of their organization. The tool allows the company to facilitate positive culture changes and continuous improvement within their organization.

Individuals with experience in quality assurance, quality control, quality engineering, operations, production, and manufacturing and global regulations are needed. Volunteers will help write/contribute to the standard.

Applicants should apply by contacting PDA’s Standards Manager by January 14, 2020.
