Quality Assurance: A Guide to the Application of ISO 9001 to Process Plant Projects
Fred Owen, Derek Maidment
IChemE, 1996 - Technology & Engineering - 71 pages
This essential guide has now been fully revised and expanded to take into account the revision of ISO 9001 in 1994. The second edition also addresses the increasing demands, requirements and controls of information transfer, an activity which today is having a great impact on the success of engineering projects. The ISO 9000 series of standards is a formalized quality assurance management system designed to ensure that quality is built into every stage of the activity in hand. Wider application of the same principles across every aspect of a company's activities leads to Total Quality Management. The guidance given is intended to help contracting and operating companies in the chemical process industries, as well as those in the food, drink, pharmaceutical and building industries, as they strive for greater quality and to comply with ever-stricter legislation on safety and the environment.
