TUV Rheinland Philippines recommends ISO certifications for Puerto Princesa PDF Print E-mail

By Cheryl A. Galili

PUERTO PRINCESA CITY, Oct. 31 (PNA) -- The TUV Rheinland Philippines, Inc. (TRPI), the pioneering international certification body in the Philippines established in 1991, has recommended that the city government here is now qualified to receive its ISO 9001:2008 and ISO 14001:2004 certifications.

It was contained in a letter signed by TRPI Systems Certification Manager Melody O. Mokamad sent to Mayor Edward S. Hagedorn recently.

The recommendation was made by TUV Rheinland after conducting a thorough inspection and review last September of the city government’s documentation of its management and organizational processes.

ISO 9001:2008 refers to the “quality management system where an organization needs to demonstrate its ability to consistently provide product that meets customer applicable statutory and regulatory requirements, and aims to enhance customer satisfaction through the effective application of the system, including processes for continual improvement of the system and the assurance of conformity to customer and applicable statutory and regulatory requirements.”

The ISO 14001:2004, on the other hand, pertains to the “requirements for an environmental management system to enable an organization to develop and implement a policy and objectives which take into account legal requirements and others to which the organization subscribes, and information about significant environmental aspects. It applies to those environmental aspects that the organization identifies as those which it can control and those which it can influence.”

Hagedorn said the recommendation of TRPI means the city government is doing the right things to manage its affairs and implement policies that have important values in serving the people and the environment.

An ISO 9001 certification, he said, “is important for the city government to shape a workable method that can implement and support quality management system, as well as escalate the involvement of top management with regards to this system.”(PNA)
