Overview

OVQ promotes the idea of quality and management systems in Austrian trade and industry. An OVQ membership supports dissemination of the relevant processes, methods, techniques and findings of the quality and management systems in Austria and abroad. Thus confidence of trade and industry in the competence of quality experts, system managers and auditors is increased.
