EOQ Membership/Partnership


EOQ is a network of organizations from countries of Europe and outside of Europe, linking hundreds of thousands of companies and experts in the field of Quality in its broadest sense. EOQ is helping its members to prepare individuals and companies to be successful in the 21st century.
The success of EOQ relies on its members. They are the operators of the organisation. EOQ Membership is granted only by application which is assessed against clear criteria by the EOQ Executive Board.

The effective member (National Representative) organizations have one official representative in the EOQ General Assembly (GA) and meet formally twice a year to discuss the follow up of the projects and to exchange their experiences. The president and the executive officers, the EOQ Executive Board, are elected from the GA members and their task is to manage the organization on a daily basis, fully supported by the Director General and the EOQ secretariat. The Executive Board meets as often as the interests of the association require it and at least three times a year.

Besides these regular meetings are performed different groups activities, on a variety of topics allowing exchange of experience in different countries on specific subjects such as information technology, human resources, education and training, elaboration of EOQ normative documents etc. These groups manage their own projects.
