Regional Workshop on Quality Management Systems in South East Asia

Setting up Quality Management Systems (QMS) in Mine Action is a requirement to ensure the effectiveness and efficiency of mine action programs and secure the confidence of various stakeholders including communities, beneficiaries and donors in the quality of Mine Action services, products and processes produced and implemented. 

A number of interrelated International Mine Action Standards (IMAS), drawing on the principles and requirements of ISO standards, are designed to support National Mine Action Authorities (NMAA) in developing their national standards, and devising reliable QMS, that encompassed all aspects of their mine action programs. 

In South East Asia, NMAAs have been successful in setting up and implementing QMS. Yet, with the sizable contamination profile across the region, drawing on lessons learned, sharing experiences across countries, and revisiting the IMAS requirements for improvement is planned to support the enhancement of QMS in affected countries. Increasing operational efficiency to meet the increasing Land Release demands is anchored on strong, adaptable and responsive QMS. NMAA are also more capable of developing effective liability and risk management frameworks when fit-for-purpose QMS are developed in their programs.
