New Domestic Safety Standards for the 2nd Quarter 2013
Document Center Inc. is pleased to announce that the following New Standards on Domestic Safety are available now:
To view similar standards, please see our Document Center List of Standards on Domestic Safety.
If you're an appliance manufacturer or involved with products meant for consumers rather than for businesses, you'll want to carefully review the list of standards above. These recent releases can have an impact on your organization.
Of special interest are the 2 new ISO standards for consumer product safety and product recall. These really reflect the changes in the standards world that are leading to more and more "management" standards. These are standards that provide users with guidelines on best practices in the "soft arts," like human resources, quality and environmental management, and customer service.
Years ago when I took over Document Center, standards focused on engineering matters, like materials and products. There were only a few military documents that addressed quality and other "fuzzier" issues. With the shift to ISO 9001 certification from the old MIL-Q-9858 system, we've seen an unintended consequence -- more and more areas of business and work life in general are being reviewed for possible standardization. You can think of standards for teachers as a good example of the kinds of changes I'm thinking of.
It's just not possible to keep up with all these new documents unless you're a standards distributor like Document Center. The constant inflow of new documents and our interest in spotting trends that can help our customers provide better quality products with reduced liability means that we can help you with the documents you need.
