Iran National Quality Award assessment Working Group


The comprehensive national quality assessment system

The comprehensive national quality assessment system based on the Islamic Iranian model and an accurate explanation of the quality field prospect is the basis for the main- and macro-decisions, guidance, supervision, and establishment of the country's quality system at the national level.

This system covers and directs the fields of economic, social, cultural, and industrial development related to quality, which will ultimately lead to the improvement of the life quality of people in Islamic civilization. Achieving economic growth through quality and standardization is one of the most important financial goals of countries and is one of the tools that improve productivity.

The quality approach based on the Islamic Iranian model of progress and the statement of the second step of the Islamic revolution are as follows:

 -Paying attention to spirituality and ethics in models of excellence and quality in society based on the recommendations of the Islamic religion and the realization of the second step of the Islamic revolution as a direction to provide all individual and social activities and the primary needs of society

-Emphasizing the strengthening of the country's independent economy, which is based on mass and high-quality production, justice-oriented distribution, moderate and wasteful (excessive) consumption and wise management relationships

-Promoting the Iranian Islamic lifestyle, culture, and work.


Achieving economic growth through quality is one of the most important goals of countries. In recent decades, quality has been recognized as one of the principles of superiority in international arenas, to the extent that achieving and spreading the culture of quality at all levels of society has been proposed as one of the necessities of economic development in developed countries. Therefore, most countries have national models based on their scientific and national principles to recognize the leaders of quality and award the national quality award. On 06/05/2002, the Supreme Council of Standards approved the establishment of the Iran National Quality Award and the award’s model was determined based on the model of the European Quality Foundation. Then, the model of Iran national quality award was designed according to the economic, social, and cultural conditions of the country as well as the characteristics of Iranian organizations by exploiting modern management knowledge, and in other words, it is considered a completely national model that can be used by foreign organizations.

According to the government law for the country's standard system approved on 10/03/2017 by the parliament of the Islamic Republic of Iran, which was also approved by the Expediency Discernment Council on 11/25/2017, the Iran National Standards Organization is the official authority for determining the National Quality Award and holding the related ceremony and awarding of this prize. In addition, holding any conference, seminar, and similar topics in the field of standards and quality needs permission from the Iran National Organization of Standards.

After establishing the Iran National Quality Award, November 9th (World Quality Day) was named the National Quality Day by the Public Culture Council and included in the country's official calendar. The national quality award is given annually to the best organizations on this day.
