ISO 26000Standard ISO 26000 - social responsibility:

The final round of information and consultations before adoption of ISO 26000 standard was held on November 17 and 18 for representatives of Central and Eastern Europe and Balkan countries. Bosnia and Herzegovina representatives were Prof.dr. Nermina Zaimović-Uzunović, president of B&H Quality Association, Mrs. Lenka Kozić, manager of Market surveilance agency, and Tihomir Anđelić, expert of Bosnian Institute for standardization of Bosnia and Herzegovina.
ISO/TMB/WG/SR comittee prepared standard which refers to social responsibility of all stakeholders in modern global economy. The following subject should participate in implementation of this standard, in February 2010: Industry (manufacturing and services), consumers, government sector, NGO, unions and others. The key objectives of this standard include: human rights, environment, labour rights, consumer protection, ethical business principles, involvement of local community in development. Standard is not subjected to certification, and numerous companies are being prepared to implement the principles of social responsibility in their business. All other stakeholders should be included into national mirror committee and to promote ISO 26000 in national level.

4. konferencija kvaliteta u BiH 4th Quality Conference

The world quality day, November 12, this year was marked with the 4th Quality Conference entitled "National Quality Award". The conference was held in hotel "Europe", Sarajevo.
Around 60 participants took part in conference activities. They came from industrial enterprises, governmental and non-governmental institutions, certification agencies and other companies who deal with quality assurance or who are interested to promote the idea of quality in their business.
The materials and conclusions from the conference are available on the following link, and you can also see the Pholto galery from the conference.

Training for coordinate measurement machine

Between September 8 and 17 2009, the training for coordinate measuruing machine Zeiss Contura was realised in the Laboratory for measurements. The training was performed by mr. Robert Grosek from Zeiss IMT Austria. Intensive training was realised through 3 modules (Basic, Advanced i Curves) and it was attended by our laboratory staff, and cooperatives from the Institute for metallurgy "Kemal Kapetanović" and Mechanical Engineering Faculty from Sarajevo. After this training, the Laboratory will soon start with commercial services of dimensional and shape control.

Strengthening metrology infrastructure in Bosnia and Herzegovina:

The meeting with key metrology experts was organized in Zenica, at the Institute for metallurgy and materials, on August 11. The meeting was part of the activities of the first part of the project "Establishment of national metrology system in Bosnia and Herzegovina". The meeting was intitated by mr. Dušan Kordik, team leader and expert for metrology from the Czech Republic and mr. Zoltan Zelenka, expert of Austrian metrology institute.
EU supported and granted financial resources for the project "Strengthening metrology infrastructure in Bosnia and Herzegovina", with one million Euros. The project is granted to the consortium consisting of Austrian, Czech and Portuguese metrology institutes, who will help Bosnian experts to establish legal and fundamental metrology in B&H. The goal of this visit was to get familiar with status of metrology in B&H, preparation of report about this area and meeting the local experts who will participet in realization of this project. It is important to mention that establishment and functionality of metrology infrastructure in B&H one of EU integration preconditions.
