As part of the Technology Application and Promotion Institute of the Department of Science and Technology’s (DOST-TAPI) preparation for the International Organization for Standardization (ISO) 9001:2008 to ISO 9001:2015 migration, a training on the new standard’s Quality Management System Requirements was held on 11-12 September 2017 at the DOST-TAPI Audio-visual Room (AVR).

Preceded by invited speaker Ms. Mary Glory Caunin, ISO expert and lead auditor, the two-day training aimed to disseminate awareness of the adoption of the new standards among DOST-TAPI employees.

The ISO 9000 family contains standards that provide guidance and tools in ensuring that organizations consistently meet customer’s requirements through quality management system.

Subsequently, quality management system is the way the organization directs and controls activities which ultimately affects customer satisfaction.

With the release of ISO 9001:2015 replacing ISO 9001:2008, DOST-TAPI guarantees its clients and customers consistent and good quality services, and rounded business benefits.

“The most noticeable change in ISO 9001:2015 is the structure. The new standard moves away from the classical corrective or preventive action approach to a more general risk management model,” said Caunin.

The adoption of a quality management system is a strategic decision that can help improve an organization’s overall performance and provide a sound basis for sustainable development initiatives.

DOST-TAPI’s continued ISO certification shows the Institute’s commitment in providing outstanding customer service and continuing its seal of excellence in public service.
