In many industries, leaders have traditionally viewed a quality management system (QMS) as an additional burden and cost on a business – ‘quality’ owned the system. This view is still widespread from where standards are necessary to where they are not. Often the mantra ‘it is only R&D therefore quality doesn’t apply’ being the norm and acceptable practice. However, due to significant errors within scientific and non-scientific organisations in recent times which have reached national and international headlines, quality has become high profile. This has led to more calls for establishing quality systems where previously there was no appetite for one.
