Great wall of china facts

Congratulations TQCSI (China) for being approved by CNCA for auditing and certifying clients to ISO 27001 (Information security management systems - Requirements).

TQCSI is accredited by JAS-ANZ for certifying clients to ISO 27001 and can now do so in China having met all government requirements.

General Manager of TQCSI (China), Liu Changyi, took great pleasure in informing TQCSI's President, Craig Bates, of the milestone over the weekend. TQCSI (China) is expecting to roll ISO 27001 certification out to many of its existing ISO 9001, ISO 14001 & ISO 45001 clients.

Who’d be in the food business with the plethora of regulatory, industry and customer standards, codes, audits and other pre-requisites to satisfy? Seems like you need a good full-time Compliance Manager just to keep up – and who can afford that?

That’s why the Global Food Safety Initiative (GFSI) was established; to benchmark food safety programs, which organisations can implement with assurance that it will satisfy all of their major customers’ requirements. Superior organisations would simply require their suppliers to be certified to any one of those GFSI recognised certification programs.


TQCSI is pleased to announce Wayne Gobert OAM has joined the Company as an Area Manager and Auditor in the Sydney Region.

Wayne enjoyed a distinguished career in the Royal Australian Navy before he pursued human resources management. Since then he has enjoyed senior positions leading ‘People & Culture’ in major Australian organisations.

An Integrated Management System (IMS) Lead Auditor Course will be held at Quality House in Adelaide, South Australia, 9-13 September.

The five day course includes the following Exemplar Global TPECS Modules:
• Module AU – Auditing management systems

• Module EM – Auditing environmental management systems (ISO 14001)

A Sovereign Industrial Capability Priority Grant has been awarded to TQCSI by the Centre for Defence Industry Capability (CDIC) on behalf of the Australian Government. The Grant is to facilitate TQCSI undertaking testing, evaluation, auditing, certification and systems assurance.

TQCSI will be the first Australian company to certify organisations to the ASD quality standards for the Aviation, Space and Defence (ASD) industries. Certification against the same standards will also be provided by TQCSI’s Indigenous arm, TQCSI-Yaran, the only Indigenous based certifier in Australia.

                                             TQCSI  HR Code

@TQCSI has launched the TQCSI Human Resources Compliance Code, believed to be the first of its type in the world. Published in August 2019, the HR Compliance Code was developed following consultation with ‘people and culture’ professionals, including international experts.

The HR Compliance Code is intended to be used as a guide for organisations who wish to implement a management system ensuring they respect legislation, agreements and conventions people work under.

TQCSI audits and certifies a number of high-end hotel chains throughout Asia, many of whom are dedicated to sustainable operations and committing significant resources to do so. Best practice is to compliment these sustainable operations with certification to ISO 9001, ISO 14001, ISO 45001 & ISO 22000.

Interestingly, late last year, ISO released ISO 21401, Tourism and related services – Sustainable management systems for accommodation establishment – Requirements.

This new Standard specifies environmental, social and economic requirements to implement a sustainability management system for aspects that can be controlled by the hotel. It won’t be long before better hotels integrate ISO 21401 with their integrated management system.

All ISO management system standards (MSS) follow ISO's high-level structure, which has significantly improved the understanding and integration of MSS. The high-level structure has been in use since 2012 through an instrument known as 'Annex SL'. Annex SL is now being reviewed and a new version will be published in 2020. ISO MSS are continually evolving and improving.

The new Version 5 of FSSC 22000 was published 28 May 2019. It is freely available electronically at Part II of the FSSC 22000 Scheme Version 5 documentation describes certification requirements for organisations.

Summary of Changes
The main reasons for the new version are to ensure its compatibility with ISO 22000:2018, compliance with the Global Food Safety Initiative (GFSI) benchmarking requirements and to resolve some issues raised with the previous version (Version 4.1).
Most of the changes are in the certification body’s management of the certification process but there are some important changes for clients as described below.

Congratulations to our new Senior Lead Auditors; Bruce Marett, Sean Moules and Sean Bates.
