Quality in the Asia‐Pacific Region

Describes the origin and growth of the Asia Pacific Quality Control Organization (APQCO) from its inception in 1981, its formal initiation in 1985 and its development to the present. The APQCO is a federation of national quality organizations within the Asia Pacific region. It is patterned after the highly effective European Organization for Quality (EOQ). As the nations of the Asia Pacific region continued to industrialize, it was both timely and appropriate that their national quality organizations should form a federation to exchange information and to work together for their mutual benefit. Contains some speculation about the future of the APQCO.
