In the United States, TAG 176 develops the U.S. positions on ISO/TC 176, which covers quality management and quality assurance.
Delegates selected by the TAG actively participate in all activities of ISO/TC 176, including the development of ISO standards in quality terminology, quality systems, and quality technology. Participation in TAG 176 provides an opportunity for representatives of all affected U.S. constituencies (industry, commerce, education, etc.) to influence the development of international quality standards, which have become a foundation of international trade.
The vision of ISO/TC 176 is that through worldwide acceptance and use, the ISO 9000 family of standards will provide an effective means for improving the performance of individual organizations. This in turn will make people and organizations more confident that goods and services will meet their expectations, thereby enhancing trade, global prosperity, and individual well-being.
If you’re interested in participating in TAG 176 or have additional questions, please e-mail The ASQ Standards Team, at firstname.lastname@example.org.
