It was then decided that this conference should become a tradition. Therefore, the second edition of the Conference took place at the premises of “Minerva”, “Diana” and “Afrodita”
hotels from Baile Herculane, in 1988. Romanian Society for Quality Assurance took over this tradition, by organizing the third edition of the Conference at Hotel “Roman” from Baile Herculane, in
September 1996.

The eighth edition of the Conference, CCF 2002, was organized at the Casino from Sinaia, in the period 18th – 20th of September 2002 and it enjoyed the presence of distinguished guests from abroad and well-known specialists from Romania.
