This American National Standard presents requirements for a Quality Management Systems (QMS) for environmental programs. A national consensus standard for a QMS for programs involving environmental information and technology has been shown to be a valuable instrument to verify and help to improve the suitability and effectiveness of quality control (QC) and quality assurance (QA) practices applied to environmental programs. This American National Standard is intended to provide a minimum set of requirements to enable organizations to plan, implement, and assess the suitability and effectiveness of a QMS for environmental programs involving environmental information and technology. Recognizing the diversity of scope of environmental programs and the breadth of the field of application, this Standard also provides non-mandatory guidelines in an annex to enable users to extend quality beyond the minimum requirements.
