Policy Review

The QMS will develop as a result of experience, suggestions and actions arising from audits or in response to performance measurement. All changes will be controlled according to the relevant procedures. 

Feedback regarding the performance of the QMS will be actively sought from:

  • Projects: At the conclusion of each project a debriefing session will be arranged to discuss what helped or hindered performance during the project;
  • Audits: The continued value of the QMS will be assessed by formal activity audits at regular intervals, as determined by the Management Team.
Regular management reviews of the QMS will be held to consider its added value and the result of any audits that have been carried out. The QMS and the Quality Policy will be regularly reviewed to ensure it continues to support the strategic direction of the Company. In addition, interim releases of revised forms or individual procedures may be released at the discretion of the Corporate Assurance Manager.
