Why a Separate Quality Organization?

AQAV's approach to bringing quality management into the industry has its parallels in other industries. Note that the organizations that create and maintain the quality standards are separate from the industry association:



AQAV is non-profit 501(c)(3) corporation that is dedicated to improving the operational art of designing and installing audio visual technology. Engineered audio visual systems continue to become more complex and difficult to integrate. By focusing on the quality management of these systems, and of those who design and install them, we can benefit the AV industry and all its stakeholders: including clients and users of AV technology, AV designers and installers, equipment manufacturers, related construction and architectural firms, and the environment.
