Process points: Resources include SOX conference, capabilities data sheet, mapping guide


Among available process-related resources announced recently are an upcoming conference on the Sarbanes-Oxley Act, a laboratory information management system capabilities data sheet aimed at chemical and petrochemical industries, and a best practices guide to warehouse and production facility temperature and humidity mapping. Details and links to more information follow.

Complying with the Sarbanes-Oxley law while improving overall operations is the focus of an upcoming conference hosted by the American Society for Quality (ASQ). “Beyond compliance to Sarbanes-Oxley—financial benefits from integrating your management systems” is scheduled for Sept. 27-28 in Philadelphia. The event will demonstrate how firms can use data from often costly, mandatory financial reporting to improve overall operations. Click here for more information or to register online.
