Quality Management System for Aviation Meteorological Service Successfully Completed the Tri-annual Full Scale Audit
The Hong Kong Observatory successfully completed the second re-certification of the ISO 9001 quality management system for aviation meteorological service in October 2008 and received the renewed certificate (Fig.1). Re-certification is a full scale audit carried out every 3 years which is supplemented by annual surveillance audits to monitor the effectiveness of the quality management system. Mr SK Wong, the lead auditor of the re-certification, was satisfied with the Observatory's quality management system for aviation meteorological services and considered it to be operated effectively.
