Due to the drastically increasing number of Corona cases and the significant expansion of risk areas, the board of the QM Association recommends that the unannounced follow-up inspections (UN) should be dispensed with for the time being.
This temporary measure is intended to limit contacts in order to help minimise the risk of infection. Developments will be closely monitored. As soon as the epidaemic situation allows, the quality controls will be resumed in the new year at the usual level.
After the general situation has improved somewhat, the temporary waiver of UN audits in connection with the Corona Pandemic has been revoked.
Due to the existing situation in connection with the Corona Pandemic, the members of the QM Association have expressed their support for a temporary waiver by the UN.
The new issue of the QM-Journal informs about the association´s efforts to prepare for the next years and to face new challenges. Therefore association is being in direct exchange with its members and the supervisory authorities.
