Quality Austria is the leading Austrian contact for the Integrated Management System, based on quality, environmental and OH&S (occupational health and safety) management, and the topic of business quality.
We are committed to optimize the success of our customers and partners enabled by our services and consistent further development of management systems.

As an independent certification body we conduct conformity assessments on the basis of international standards and regulations. Thus we assess and confirm that relevant requirements (such as those of ISO 9001, the quality management standard) are being adhered to. We predominantly certify systems, products and services as well as persons in line with the accreditation regulations of the Federal Ministry for Digital and Economic Affairs.
