The Chartered Quality Institute exists to make society better by supporting excellence in, and the widespread adoption of, quality management. We are the only professional body dedicated to Governance, Assurance and Improvement – helping quality professionals protect the reputation of organisations around the world.
While CQI members deliver excellence in business, IRCA members are recognised as the gold standard in management systems auditing. We are the largest management system auditor certification body in the world – providing organisations with essential assurance that their systems are working effectively and showcasing our members as key contributors for business improvement.
Our Competency Framework sets out how individuals, can add value to business and to society. Together, the CQI and IRCA form one organisation, the CQI. By operating as one organisation, we can combine operational and strategic functions to offer improved services and products to our members and stakeholders.
