Policy and Goals in the field of quality and planning
for their achievement of Atlanta Ltd. Maritime Agency.
The implementation of quality policy is achieved by setting and achieving goals, among which we highlight:
• quality planning with established frequency;
• periodic verification of risks and opportunities for all QS processes;
• establishing and periodically reviewing the context of the organization;
• ensuring the selection and assessment of the quality of work of suppliers and contractors whose services and products directly affect the quality of the final product and / or organization services;
• Conducting internal and external audits of the UK for ongoing monitoring;
• conducting special events to form and promote leadership and corporate culture among employees;
• reduction in the number of complaints from consumers;
• identification and reduction of internal inconsistencies;
• reduction to zero of claims and comments of supervisory and controlling bodies;
• ensuring constant monitoring and analysis of the work of the UK by senior management;
• timely provision to the consumer of the product in accordance with the requirements stated or implied by the consumer, the requirements of ISO 9001: 2015, regulatory documents of the UK and external regulatory documents;
• staff involvement in quality improvement;
• planning activities to improve QS processes.
To ensure the measurability of quality goals, senior management analyzes the processes of the QS, as a result of which the achieved quantitative indicators of the processes are analyzed and indicators are planned for the next period. For each process and subprocess, the UDSK F-18 “Process Indicator Plan” form is filled out, in which clear and measurable quantitative indicators of each process are planned, coordinated with the quality policy and taking into account applicable requirements. The UDSK F-18 form is filled in by the owner of each process.
The form owner can approve the process or another senior manager of the organization. The executors of the process should be familiar with this form.
The UDSK F-18 form is a monitoring tool for each process throughout the year, as the achieved indicators are entered into it monthly or quarterly (by decision of the organization).
If necessary, during the year, goals and indicators can be reviewed and adjusted by the process owner.
When planning activities to achieve quality goals in the form of UDSK F-18, it is determined:
• what needs to be done / achieved;
• quantitative indicators of goals;
• in what time frame.
In the descriptions of the processes and in DSK 01-1 "Guide to the quality of the organization" it is defined:
• what resources are required for this;
• who is responsible for all this;
• how will the results be evaluated.
At the end of the year, for each process, the form of UDSK F-19 “Analysis of process indicators” is filled out. This form indicates whether or not the planned quality goals and established process indicators are achieved, the reasons and possible measures to improve each QS process are considered.
When reviewing quality goals, the planned quantitative level of reducing consumer complaints and Non-conformities is mandatory. Quality objectives are the starting point of the entire planning process and are complemented by current and future production goals.
