The favorable effects of increasing the quality of the products is reflected in increasing labour productivity, reducing production cost, increase profitability.

Currently, many companies are particularly interested in quality assurance models proposed by international standards of ISO 9000, ISO 14000, ISO 22000, 18,000 OSHAH, etc. Some of these companies have already a certified quality management system based on these standards.
