  1. Welcome by Local Host – Czech Society for Quality by Mr. Jan Hnatek

Mr. Jan Hnatek was unable to join the meeting because of his duties at the EOQ conference but sent his warm welcome to the participants of the meeting.




  1. Welcome and Introduction to World Quality Alliance by Mr. Yury Gousakov

Mr. Yury Gousakov, EOQ President, opened the meeting, thanking those in participation and thanking Mr. Jan Hnatek for the arrangements.


Mr. Yury Gousakov shared his reflection on the history of the WAQ and the significance of having rotated the coordination of the WAQ to ASQ until the Houston Meeting 2008. Yury said this meeting was important in turning from the stage of organizing to the stage of accomplishing work. And, more importantly, in taking on issues that are global in importance and scope. He has every expectation that the value of the WAQ will be high.


  1. Agreement of Minutes from Singapore Meeting

The minutes were approved without changes.


4. Review of the Principles of the WQA – Mr. Bertrand Jouslin de Noray
Mr. Bertrand Jouslin de Noray referred participants to the documented Principles of the WQA (which were distributed with the meeting agenda and available on the EOQ Web site.) Bertrand described the initial ideas leading to the creation of the WQA and how those ideas have evolved over time to the principles expressed in the document. There was support for proceeding in alignment with the principles as explained.
The formative period of the WAQ include the founding event in Harrogate, England in October of 2002. Followed by the first meeting in Tokyo, Japan in September of 2005, and then an increase in activity resulting in the meeting in Antwerp, Belgium in May of 2006 and a second meeting in Singapore in September 2006. Through these meetings, participation expanded, the principles were shaped and the Key Issues were identified.
Through these meetings it became more and more apparent that all national bodies shared much in common including a strong desire to see quality reach its full value to society.


5. The Key Issues – Updates/Progress Reports/Plans
The three Key Issues that surfaced from the first World Summit in Antwerp 2006 were:
Maintain and improve the Quality of products and services.
Help under recognised countries and organizations to develop their richness and find their place in the world community.
Improve the quality of life for world citizens.
The following work items have been proposed and chartered to support these three Key Issues:


    1. Quality of Life Index – Mr. Bertrand Jouslin de Noray

Charter – pending

Yes, there is still interest in this project, but so far it is still in the discussion phase. One Quality of Life Index is believed to be in existence perhaps providing a basis for advancing.

Mr. Chuck Aubrey said he and the APQO would be interested in contributing to the Charter, as would ANQ.


    1. Suggestions to ISO/IAF – Mr. Hitoshi Kamikubo

Charter – Provided

There is much interest in this Issue as ANQ, APQO, ASQ, EOQ, and IAQ all pledged their interest in involvement.

Mr. Ichiro Kotsuka is to propose next steps.

Mr. Paul Borawski will share a paper developed by ANSI, ANAB, ASQ, and RABQSA International in the value of third-party certification.

Mr. Viktor Seitschek offered his knowledge of a worldwide study that suggests an accelerating rate of certification.


    1. Creation of New Statistical ToolsMr. Hitoshi Kamikubo

Charter – Provided

There is interest, although uncertainty, about this project and involvement.

Mr. Ichiro Kotsuka is to propose next steps.


    1. Top Management’s InvolvementMr. Hitoshi Kamikubo

All agree on the need. ASQ has some research and experience to share.

Mr. Ichiro Kotsuka is to propose next steps.


    1. Meeting of National Quality Organizations – Mr. Paul Borawski

Meeting of the National Quality Organizations will take place next May near Houston, Texas immediately following the ASQ World Conference on Quality and Improvement.

All are asked to help in the identification of organizations to invite.


    1. Increase the Effectiveness of National & Regional Quality Organizations – Mr. Yury Gousakov

Charter – Pending

Mr. Yury Gousakov is certain several efforts underway will contribute to the improved effectiveness of all national and regional quality organizations.

Mr. Yury Gousakov requests that all participants send him the list of contact information (name, organization, mailing address, e-mail address) for all known quality bodies as a resource that will be needed for this project, as well as others. Deadline – July 15th please

APQO – Member Organizations

ASQ – WorldPartners

ANQ – Member Organizations

EOQ – Member Organizations

MEQA – Member Organizations

These contacts will be used to create a WAQ database at ASQ to support WAQ communications and increased engagement in WAQ activities.


    1. Have Support from UN for Having Quality as a World Issue – Mr. Yury Gousakov

Charter – Pending

This project remains viable. Looking to increase world attention to the importance of quality.




    1. Confront New Ideas in a Special Meeting – Mr. Paul Borawski

Charter - Provided

Outcome to be a special session at the 2008 ASQ World Conference as a prelude to the World Summit of National Quality Bodies.

6) Discussion of 2nd World Summit – Houston Texas
Please see the charter and reference to item 5e above. All agreed the initial approach was sound. It will take the cooperation of all to make the event successful. Every effort will be made to benefit from the multi-cultural assembly and to focus the short time together on growing relationships, advancing work issues, and matching “needs” with those who have “resources.”
7) Review of Actions and Next Steps including Next Meeting
Most of the actions are implicit in the Charters. All are asked to help in the identification of organization, and their contact information, so we can enhance our ability to communicate and expand the Alliance. The deadline, to keep the Summit on plan, is July 15th please.
It was agreed that the next meeting of participants prior to the Summit in 2008 could be the ANQ Conference in Seoul, Korea October 17-18, 2007. A notice will follow. After Seoul, the next meeting will by May 8-9, 2008 coinciding with the WAQ Global Summit in Houston, Texas.


  1. Closing

All were thanked for their participation, especially Mr. Ichiro Kotsuka for joining the meeting during his vacation.
