Interviewer Quality Control Scheme 


The Interviewer Quality Control Scheme (IQCS)
is an independently run scheme, which requires members to adhere to a set of benchmark market research industry standards. These cover the recruitment, training and appraisal of fieldwork staff, and the implementation of various administrative and validation procedures to maintain the quality and accuracy of data collected.

The IQCS standards have been serving the demands of the market research industry since 1978, and are held in high regard by both clients and the research industry, globally. The IQCS Council comprises elected members working in the industry and representing not only the various types of market research fieldwork undertaken, but also clients and various other industry bodies, including the MRS, MRQSAB and AURA.

Further information on IQCS can be obtained from their website at or by telephoning IQCS Administrator, Gill Wareing on 07935 057275, or emailing
