MALATE, Manila—DOLE-NCR, the premier regional office of the Department of Labor and Employment, has been recommended for ISO 9001:2015 certification, announced SOCOTEC Certification International Philippines (CIP) on its last day of the 3-day external audit held July 16-19, 2018.

SOCOTEC Certification International, a leader in the assessment and certification of international, national and industry standards, determined that DOLE-NCR’s quality management system meets client requirements and its workforce demonstrates a strong commitment to the achievement and sustainability of the ISO standard.

DOLE-NCR Regional Directors Henry John S. Jalbuena and Atty. Ana C. Dione are grateful to this another significant accomplishment, after surmounting an extensive assessment that required a high degree of leadership commitment.

“Thank you to the DOLE-NCR ISO Core and QMS Team and to all staff who have been a part of this process. We did it! Thank you very much for the cooperation and support of DOLE-NCR!” said Directors Jalbuena and Dione.

To be compliant with the ISO 9001:2015, DOLE-NCR and its six field district offices went through a comprehensive evaluation process that covered updating of the existing quality management system (QMS) to a new standard. These involved series of rigorous management system documentation review with pre-audit workshops and consultation meetings, initial assessment, and clearance of any related non-conformances to identify corrective actions in pursuit of being at par with the global standards. (READ: DOLE-NCR prepares for ISO 9001:2015 Migration) END / Hershey Aquino
