With ISO 9001:2015 and its “Context of the Organization,” external regulatory requirements such as ITAR are becoming more prominent in a quality management system (QMS).  Combined with the Risk Based Thinking concept, organizations need to be aware of what auditors will be asking about ITAR/export compliance and how it affects their organization.  CVG Strategy can provide implementation, training and support for clients needing an export compliance program.

Gholston, President of CVG Strategy. “With the enhanced focus on external regulations in the new ISO 9001:2015 and AS9100D it’s important to incorporate export compliance as part of their QMS.”
