National Quality Award of the Slovak Republic

The Slovak Office of Standards, Metrology and Testing (SOSMT) announces and organizes the National Quality Award of the Slovak Republic (National Award), which aims at motivating and supporting public and private sector bodies in the continuous improvement and increasing efficiency through the implementation of the EFQM Excellence Model and the CAF Model. The National Award is a major activity of the National Quality Programme of the Slovak Republic and the most prestigious national quality award for any organization, and at the same time it is the highest possible degree of recognition that can be achieved, thus the awarded company can differentiate itself from the competitors in the field of quality management. 

As a part of the competition, the SOSMT organized free information seminars to raise awareness about the need for implementation of quality management systems in all areas of manufacturing, services, and public administration organizations.
