Technical standards for quality.

By Veronika Nováková


This thesis deals with the question of whether the technical standards have an impact on quality. We understand quality as a degree of compliance of requirements of a set of inherent features. Inherent feature means its own internal character of the object, whose quality is dealt. Quality and standards passed a long development, both from a point of law, as well as history, which began as early as in the old Mesopotamia by reference in Chammurapi Code. Since then, the quality changed its definition for several times, but the meaning of quality remains the same. It is necessary to mention the initiator of the quality who contributed by their work to its development, such as Prof. RNDr. František Egermayer, DrSc., who was the most significant initiator of modern understanding of quality in our country, then it is Dr. Joseph M. Juran, renowned author and "father" of modern quality management, also we must not forget William Edwards Deming, an American statesman and professor who is the most known of his work in Japan, and not least, world-famous personality Agnes Waddell, and other prominent personalities in this field. Today, quality control and normalizing ensure the main government authorities, such as Ministry of Industry and Trade of CR, which also ensures the management of other government bodies (ÚNMZ, ČMI, ČIA, see Chapter 6). The very Ministry of Industry and Trade may encharge a corporate entity to creation assurance and issuing Czech technical standards, their amendments and repeal. This assignment is non-transferable. As long as this assignment is valid, no other corporate entity must be encharged for this activity. There is no legal claim for this assignment. The costs of the creation of the Czech technical standards are covered by a person who requires processing. The costs of the creation of standards, notably the Czech technical standards transposing European standards, prepared pursuant to the request of the ministries or other central government departments and the costs associated with membership in international and European standardization organizations are paid by the State. In creation and issuing the Czech technical standards, their changes and cancellation must be provided the conditions laid down in the decision to assignment, as set out in Chapter 3
