RP news wires

Toyota Motor Corporation (TMC) announced that it will start studying an assessment of TMC's quality-assurance review-and-improvement measures prepared by the Union of Japanese Scientists and Engineers (JUSE), a non-TMC-affiliated organization specializing in quality control, and four JUSE-recommended experts.

The assessment focuses on the measures adopted at the first meeting of TMC's Special Committee for Global Quality, held on March 30, 2010, and chaired by TMC president Akio Toyoda.

At the second meeting of the Special Committee for Global Quality, which is scheduled for October, TMC plans to review the status of the quality-assurance-improvement measures it has undertaken, including those based on the assessment.
