India Quality Council
Quality Council of India (QCI) was set up in 1997 jointly by the Government of India and the Indian Industry represented by the three premier industry associations- Associated Chambers of Commerce and Industry of India (ASSOCHAM), Confederation of Indian Industry (CII) and Federation of Indian Chambers of Commerce and Industry (FICCI)-to establish and operate national accreditation structure and promote quality through National Quality Campaign.
QCI is the apex-level body responsible for formulating a strategy, general policy, constitution and monitoring its components, including the accreditation boards with the objective of ensuring transparent and credible accreditation system.
The Governing Body also monitors the progress of activities and appeal mechanisms established by the respective boards. QCI functions through the executive bodies (boards/committees) that implement the strategy, policy and operational guidance in order to achieve international acceptance and recognition of various programs offered by the Boards. Each Board has a Chairman nominated by the Chairman of QCI.
