May ISO Support Group Meeting


Four members attended the meeting on March 7, 2013 at the Adinas in Vernon Hills. In attendance were Dave Spengler, Ron Bateman, Bill Sherman, and Dave Taylor.

We continued our review of The American Petroleum Institute’s Q1 (API Q1). This is a set of ISO 9001 add-ons. We will probably finish the review next Month and be looking for another item to review

The API Q1 review is not to written in stone so if someone has another idea, we would certainly be interested in your suggestion. Email me at the address below with your suggestions.

In the Round Robin:

Ron Bateman’s company is in a problem-solving situation about a Heat-treating vendors failure. These can be used for standardization and training.

Dave S is planning to retire in January. The company will have to replace him then, as he is the source of brazing standards.

Bill is searching for unregistered (FDA) companies.

Dave Taylor is still enrolled in Mechatronics schooling at the College of Lake County.

Upcoming Meetings:

The next two meetings will be will be held on and June 6 (D-Day) and we will discuss the meeting in July as the normal date is Independence Day,

We will choose a new standard for review a new standard or guideline. The meetings will be held at Adinas on Route 45, just SE of Dover Straits. Phone (847-918-9060)

As always, an agreeably luscious meal will be served for $5.00 (free for members searching for a position), the balance being funded by ASQ section 1212 Northeast Illinois. The public is always invited and we welcome your questions about ISO or other standards. Let me know if you have particular subjects to discuss.
