THE ISAS BC & P 9001 TECHNICAL COMMITTEE MET IN GENEVA ON SEPT 7th AND 8th, 2009

The international Standardization Committee for media quality management agreed on a unique standard for Broadcasters and the Press. Taking into account the various feedbacks coming from media users (40 organizations) and the changes introduced in ISO 9001:2008 version, the panel of experts, meeting on September 7th and 8th in Geneva to review and update the former ISAS BC 9001:2003 (for broadcasting industry) and ISAS P 9001:2005 (for print media) standards, decided to merge both into a new standard, called ISAS BCP 9001:2010. This reflects the evolution of the media environment and particularly the development of multimedia and work convergence.

The Standardization Committee reasserted the managerial vocation of the standard, focusing on organization and leaving a part the content issue. The expert panel also confirmed that any media organization can implement ISAS BCP 9001 standard, but only editorially independent companies can apply for certification.

ISAS BCP 9001 maintains all requirements coming from ISAS BC 9001 and ISAS P 9001 and totally endorses the 2008 version of ISO 9001. It focuses on specific needs of the media industry and media development.

The main changes to be noticed, apart from the merging of BC and P standards, are:

  • introduction of a new chapter 5.8 and resulting requirement on risk analysis and mitigation,
  • addition of a requirement in chapter 6.4 on safety and security of journalists/ media crew in dangerous situations,
  • precision that Program Committee (for broadcasting industry) shall include representatives from all relevant departments,
  • precision on purchasing process related to contents,
  • simplification of the Quality Manual, following ISO 9001:2000 and 2008 versions.
The Standardization Committee, chaired by Henrikas Yushkiavitshus (former assistant director general of the UNESCO for Communication), gathered together 10 experts from all continents: Nathalie Labourdette (Head of EBU Training), Prof. Stuart Loory (Missouri University and former CNN vice president), Arlindo Lopes (secretary general of the Southern Africa Broadcasting Association, SABA and former executive chairman of Mozambique television), Paméla Morinière (International Federation of Journalists’ programme officer for authors’ rights, gender equality and projects, IFJ/ FIJ), Dr Javad Mottaghi (director of Asia-Pacific Institute for Broadcasting Development), Prof. Dr Jamal Naji (Professor/Researcher at the Institut Supérieur de l’Information et de la Communication, ISIC, in Rabat), Alejandro Quesada (Revista Cosas international editor and former Editor of El Comercio, Lima), Jayme Sirotsky (former chairman of the Board of the RBS group in Brazil and former president of the World Association of Newspapers, WAN).

The ISAS BCP 9001:2010 standard will be available to the public by the end of the year 2009.

UNAIDS & AIBD: NEW STANDARD UNDER DEVELOPMENT ON HIV COMMUNICATION ACTIVITIES

ISAS helps UNAIDS and AIBD to develop a new quality standard for HIV communication activities undertaken by media. This standard is particularly aimed at media managers who are in charge of managing entities producing HIV communication contents. In line with Total Quality Management concepts and ISO 9001 principles, it puts emphasis on the way the entity is organised rather than on the quality of the content itself according to the rule “a well organised and quality oriented media organization will produce high quality contents”.

This approach usefully complements what has been done over the last ten years by the UNAIDS in terms of practical documents aimed at improving the quality of HIV communication contents. A list of those documents is available on UNAIDS website in UNAIDS’s Best Pratice Collection.
