History & Shareholders

In 1985 DQS was founded by its then two main shareholders, DGQ (German Society for Quality) and DIN (German Institute for Standardization). The German industry associations HDB, Spectaris, VDMA and ZVEI completed the original shareholders. Since the merger with Underwriters Laboratories’ QRS division in 2008, UL has become an additional large shareholder of DQS Group.

Today our shareholders are the guardians of DQS’ corporate values and its high quality approach. Representing certified organizations from various industries, our industry associations mandate pragmatic customer focus and excellent service. DIN ensures direct access to and involvement in the newest international standard developments. DGQ and UL promote excellence in education and competence of our personnel, consistently worldwide.

Audit as a dialogue

DQS auditors see an audit as a professional dialogue among equal partners. Rather than completing checklists, DQS auditors focus fully on the auditee and on understanding individual management systems.

Tailor-made audit planning

Each audit is planned individually and based on the needs of each individual organization. This includes the maturity of the management system, technological, economic or cultural conditions and key topics of an organization.

Technical competence

All DQS auditors have a complete professional education, university degrees and real business experience. Amongst our auditors are medical doctors, engineers, food safety experts, biologists, finance specialists, professors and many more.

Qualification and training

DQS promotes a harmonized audit approach and a common understanding of standard interpretations. To that end, we organize a yearly worldwide mandatory auditor training program, which includes topics like interpretation of standards, audit techniques, interview methods and case studies.
