Quality and Standards (Q&S) contribute positively to economic prosperity and growth. At the company and industry levels, Q&S are a strategic business tool that can impact the bottom-line, yield cost savings, and raise productivity and efficiency. Consequently, Q&S enhance enterprise competitiveness, and help build trust in Singapore products and services.
Q&S also support the pursuit of innovation in emerging areas such as sustainability and energy.
