In this lesson, you'll tackle a number of topics that will increase your knowledge about quality standards and systems. Although ISO 9000 has a high profile, other methods and structures also play a vital role in quality improvement. First, you'll finish your study of ISO by looking at a series of standards to manage the environment—ISO 14000. Next, you'll dive into the Malcolm Baldrige National Quality Award (MBNQA), an esteemed award given for quality excellence in the United States. Finally, you'll explore three systems that apply to many companies: QS-9000, the Advanced Quality System (AQS), and the Conformité Europeenne (CE) mark.
