Recently issued Statement on Quality Management Standards (SQMS) No. 1, A Firm’s System of Quality Management (ital), changes how quality management is approached, with emphasis on creating processes and policies tailored to your firm’s needs. The new risk assessment process is a key component to identifying and evaluating the likelihood and potential impact of various risks to your firm.
The revised QM standards are designed to emphasize firm leadership’s responsibility for proactively managing quality, strengthening a firm’s monitoring and remediation processes, and advancing the ability of the firm to tailor its system of quality management to their circumstances. The first step in the path to success in implementing these new standards is understanding them.
