World Quality Day
During the conference, which was held in Murcia, the Regional Ministry of Industry announced the measures that are being planned to promote quality and innovation in the business sector. These include the agreement signed with the Asociación Española de Normalización y Certificación (AENOR – Spanish Association for Standardisation and Certification) with a view to working together to contribute towards improving the competitiveness of companies in the Murcia Region.
Last Tuesday, on the occasion of the 19th European Week of Quality, the Ministry of Industry, Commerce and Innovation of the Murcia Regional Assembly organised a conference to commemorate World Quality Day, an international event held on 14 November every year.
Excellence, innovation and social responsibility, the main themes of the conference
The Minister for Industry, Commerce and Innovation, José Ballesta Germán, opened the conference by highlighting the need for companies to commit to excellence and innovation as the best way to improve the competitiveness of industrial and service companies in the Murcia Region. With this aim, the Ministry has signed a cooperation agreement with the Asociación Española de Normalización y Certificación (AENOR).
Also discussed during the conference was the strategy adopted by Spain with regard to the social responsibility of the business sector, while the question of how to systematise innovation processes was also debated.
The conference ended with a panel discussion in which the speakers included inter alia the directors of the two leading quality and environment certification companies: Ángel Luis Sánchez Cerón, director of AENOR for the Murcia Region, and Roberto Becerra del Cosso, regional director of Bureau Veritas. Both of these experts informed the participants of the latest advances in the certification of Murcia-based companies and drew attention to growth in this area over the last few months. Moreover, they offered a preview of the advantages that will result from the next review of the ISO 9001: 2015 regulations, the draft of which has already been completed with a view to publication in 2015.
