It is not enough to claim the quality of legislation. It has to be realized as well. The question is whether the general assumptions of quality management systems can, if at all and to what extent, be adopted to introduce and ensure a quality management of the legislative process. In this paper, a possible theoretical framework for quality management of legislation is developed. First, the paper will offer an overview on quality management and its application. It will then discuss its applicability to the legislative process and the law making organs. The main finding of this paper is that an adaptation of the underlying idea of quality management systems is possible without standardizing the legislative process.
