Governance & team

Our governance ensures the financial support of the system, its credibility and continuous update to reflect new standards and rising challenges.

The General Assembly sets the overall direction of SQAS; it determines the general policies, approves the budget and financial accounts, and elects key positions such as the President, Vice President(s) of the Service Group, and members of the Executive Committee.

The Executive Committee operates between the annual general assemblies and acts as the governing body for the SQAS Service Group ensuring its smooth functioning.

For SQAS technical matters , the SQAS Technical & Accreditation Committee takes charge, handling technical aspects like creating or modifying SQAS questionnaires, conducting training, overseeing accreditation procedures, and monitoring assessor performance .

To ensure a well-rounded decision-making process, representatives from Logistics Service Providers, distributors, and their representing association, can actively participate in both the Executive and Technical committees.
