The East of Europe displays a radically different business scene than a year or two ago. Political upheavals ensued by an economic transition (to the market economy) embarked at the endeavor to join the European and global market economy.

But whoever would want to enter the world market has to have a passport as a proof of industrial quality. Most of the CMEA countries, now on their way to capitalism and its market mechanism, have already elevated industrial quality as one of the priority issues of their new economic policy. They have to overcome the past indoctrinated rigid quality control structures and procedures, and develop an up-to-date innovative company-based quality management systems. Though the experience is far from complete, some rules seem to be conclusive. This study could facilitate the deliberations of policymakers, business communities and executives.
