Safety and Quality Forum (SQF) set up by the Institution of Engineers (India) in October 2003, aims to promote and propagate various aspects of safety and quality in different engineering sectors, through networking mechanism. Besides facilitating exchange of ideas and opinion pertaining to safety and quality, it endeavours to promote awareness about them in engineering operations; assist governments and municipal bodies in framing and enforcing rules and codes for safety and quality management systems; develop courses, syllabi and course materials for Safety Engineering, Quality Management and Reliability Engineering; organise seminars, conferences and workshops; and collaborate with educational institutions and industry to promote the concept of quality and safety. Its head office is based at the Delhi State Centre. Quality Council of India (QCI) an autonomous non-profit organisation of the Government of India and the Indian Industry, is given the task of establishing an Accreditation Structure in the country. 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), the QCI aims to provide right and unbiased information on quality and related standards; spread quality movement in the country; facilitate upgradation of equipment and techniques related to quality; represent India's interests in international forums; and help establish brand equity of Indian products and services. To achieve these objectives, the Quality Council of India had five organs, namely, National Accreditation Board for Certification Bodies; National Registration Board for Personnel and Training; National Accreditation Board for Testing and Calibration Laboratories; National Quality Campaign; and Quality Information and Enquiry Service.
