NOR-STA System is a universal IT solution supporting:

  • achieving and control of standard conformance
  • rating systems for evaluation
  • assurance management with the help of assurance cases

NOR-STA System is the result of research and development project carried out by Gdańsk University of Technology. NOR-STA System is delivered for users by Argevide.

Gdańsk University of Technology provides conformance templates (available in NOR-STA system) for the following standards:

  • Hospital Accreditation Standards (maintained by National Centre for Quality Assessment in Healthcare)
  • HACCP (Hazard Analysis and Critical Control Point System)
  • Common Assessment Framework CAF 2006 and CAF 2013
