Slide 2

Today We Will Briefly depict ANSI/ASQ E4-2004 and its advantages as a QMS standard. Plot the ANSI endorsement process. Give an outline of the overhauled standard and what has changed. Compress the status of standard.

Slide 3

What is ANSI/ASQ E4-2004? An agreement based American National Standard for quality administration frameworks for natural segment programs. Created by ASQ and the ANSI Z1 Accredited Standards Committee.

Slide 4

What does ANSI/ASQ E4-2004 do? Gives particular QMS details to: Quality Management hones Environmental information gathering and utilize Design, development, and operation of built innovation Provides direction on the utilization of E4, including going past the base determinations.

Slide 5

ANSI/ASQ E4-2000 Background Originally ANSI/ASQC E4-1994: Developed by ASQ Energy and Environmental Division (EED) Derived from a few existing gauges and conventions (ASME NQA-1, ISO 9001, EPA QMS direction) Adopted as premise for U.S. EPA Quality Policy in 1998. EPA Order 5360.1

Slide 6

ANSI/ASQ E4-2000 Background proceeded with Added to Federal Acquisition Regulations in 1999. 48 CFR Part 46 "Abnormal state" Quality Assurance standard E4 reception as an area particular standard for ecological projects incorporates: Other Federal divisions and offices State and nearby governments

Slide 7

American National Standards American National Standards are: Developed by ANSI-affirmed Standards Development Organizations Subject to broad accord audit and open remark Approved by ANSI for up to five years. ANSI rules require occasional survey to: Re-approve the standard without change Withdraw the standard Revise the standard.

Slide 8

ANSI Review of E4 ANSI/ASQC E4-1994 was surveyed per ANSI rules. ASQ EED framed the E4 Work Group Survey of clients Determined that unobtrusive amendment was required. Agreement Body was the ANSI ASC Z1 Quality Management Subcommittee. E4 Work Group arranged reconsidered content.

Slide 9

ANSI Review of E4 Z1 and Public Reviews Public surveys delivered few remarks. Z1 surveys created a few changes to the standard. ANSI endorsement of modified standard finished on February 4, 2004.

Slide 10

Objectives of E4 Revision Few substantive specialized changes. Streamline structure and presentation of prerequisites and direction. Adjust E4 to ISO 9001:2000 to the degree practicable.

Slide 11

Approach to Revisions Change the presentation group Use ISO style and organization Use ISO 9000:2000 terms and definitions where conceivable Separate direction from determinations and spot in an Annex Provide a cross reference to ISO 9001:2000 for consistency and arrangement. Join "lessons learned" from 1994 E4 usage and use.

Structure of ANSI/ASQ E4-2004 Foreword 0 Introduction Scope General Principles and Applications Normative References Terms and Definitions Management Systems Collection and Evaluation of Environmental Data

Slide 13

Structure of ANSI/ASQ E4-2004 Design, Construction and Operation of Environmental Technology Annex A Terms and Definitions Annex B Guidelines on the Use of ANSI/ASQ E4 Annex C Crosswalk between ANSI/ASQ E4 and ISO 9001:2000

Slide 14

Foreword Provides general foundation on ANSI guidelines. Credits those in charge of standard. ANSI ASC Z1 Committee ASQ Energy and Environmental Division E4 Work Group Indicates that this release replaces the 1994 adaptation completely.

Slide 15

0 Introduction Provides general articulation intentionally of E4 standard. QMS for ecological projects Minimum arrangement of necessities Provides for nonmandatory rules Compatibility with other administration frameworks. ISO 9000 arrangement Not an EMS standard Not an auditable part of the standard.

Slide 16

1 Scope Brief articulation of the aim and authoritative appropriateness of the standard. E4 is a determination or necessities standard Emphasizes adaptability and expansive scope of clients.

Slide 17

2 General Principles and Applications Brief explanation of the general standards utilized: Quality framework as a system for QA and QC. Arranging, usage, and evaluation. Utilization of "evaluated methodology." Retains particular outline from 1994 rendition. Notes natural projects to which E4 might be connected.

Slide 18

3 Normative References Identifies different records whose arrangements are incorporated into ANSI/ASQ E4-2004 by reference. There are two regularizing references: ISO 9000:2000 QMS Vocabulary ISO 14050:1998 EMS Vocabulary

Slide 19

4 Terms and Definitions Provides for extra definitions not particularly secured in regulating references or Annex A. Key terms include: Environmental information Environmental information operations Environmental procedures Environmental projects Environmental innovation

Slide 20

5 Management Systems (Part A) Provides criteria for building up and keeping up a viable quality framework. Quality administration components must be utilized with Clause 6 or Clause 7 necessities to finish the QMS.

Slide 21

5 Management Systems (Part A) proceeded with Quality administration components include: Management and association Quality framework and depiction Personnel capability and preparing Procurement of things and administrations Documents and records Computer equipment and programming Planning Implementation of work procedures Assessment and reaction Quality change

Slide 22

5 Management Systems (Part A) proceeded with Quality administration components: Define administration parts and obligations Require a QA Manager who reports to top administration and who has hierarchical freedom Specify useful duties inside the association. Require a Quality Management Plan. Require occasional administration survey.

Slide 23

6 Collection and Evaluation of Environmental Data (Part B) Clause 6 components include: Planning and perusing Design of information gathering operations Implementation of arranged operations Assessment and reaction Assessment and confirmation of information ease of use Few changes from 1994 adaptation.

Slide 24

7 Design, Construction, and Operation of Environmental Technology (Part C) Clause 7 necessities include: Planning Design of frameworks Construction/creation of frameworks and segments Testing and operation of frameworks Assessment and reaction Verification and acknowledgment of frameworks

Slide 25

Annex A Terms and Definitions Expanded rundown of related terms and their definitions. ISO 9000:2000 definitions utilized where relevant. Accomplishes similarity with ISO 9001.

Slide 26

Annex B Guidelines on the Use of ANSI/ASQ E4 Provides nonmandatory rules to expand details given in this standard. Direction is assembled as: General utilization of the standard. Rules for administration frameworks. Rules for accumulation and assessment of ecological information. Rules for the outline, development, and operation of ecological innovation

Slide 27

Annex C Crosswalk Between ANSI/ASQ E4 and ISO 9001 Provides crosswalk between this standard and ISO 9001:2000. Recognizes comparable statements in every standard. Demonstrates that E4 addresses the greater part of the necessities of ISO 9001:2000.

Slide 28

Summary ANSI/ASQ E4-2004 is an endorsed American National Standard. ANSI/ASQ E4 is a perceived ISO 9001 equal standard. Recorder Accreditation Board (RAB) E4 reviews are satisfactory for RAB QMS Auditor and Lead Auditor confirmation Next strides incorporate update of EPA strategy reports to receive current variant.
