QuEST Forum Academy Webinar: How Do New Terms Get into Standards?

QuEST Forum Academy Webinar: How Do New Terms Get into Standards” 

Presented by: Gary Jing, Director of Continues Improvement at CommScope  

ISO 9000:2015 is recognized as the “Normative Reference” for ISO 9001:2015.  ISO 9000:2015 has 2 key components: Clause 2 – Fundamentals concepts and quality management principles; Clause 3 – Terms and definitions.  To many, “ISO 9000” means terminology document.  Outside the ISO 9000 family, many ISO standards have a terminology section.  Do you know in what situation a word is selected to be defined as a term in the terminology document or section? Do you know what science are behind the definition of a term?  Do you know if the intended meaning of a word can be found in dictionary, the word will not be defined as a term?  New terms are not adopted easily.  It’s a very profound process, dull to many people.  It’s a big world largely unknown to people.  This webinar intends to shed some light on it.

At the end of the session participants will have a better understanding of how terms are selected and defined in standards, and develop appreciation to the terms and terminology document used by standards.
