Quality and Safety Standards Committee (QSSC)


In September 2001, the work of Mechanical Standards Committee, the Industrial Safety Standards Committee and the Packaging Standards Committee were converged and undertaken by the General Engineering and Safety Standards Committee (GESSC) to support national initiatives in improving productivity, enhancing quality and promoting a safer and healthier workplace.

The GESSC was renamed as Quality and Safety Standards Committee (QSSC) in April 2017 following an expansion of the scope of the committee. QSSC focuses on the development and promotion of key standards for products, processes and practices related to workplace safety and health, and on overall systems, processes and capabilities in areas of quality management, risk, business continuity, compliance, anti bribery and social responsibility. The QSSC also supports the testing, inspection and certification industry through development of conformity assessment standards.
