DOST-TAPI prepares for ISO 9001:2015 certification


As the Technology Application and Promotion Institute of the Department of Science and Technology (DOST-TAPI) continue to improve and reshape the business environment by transitioning from the International Organization for Standardization (ISO) 9001:2008 to ISO 9001:2015, a training on Risk Assessment and Risk Register was conducted on 06-07 March 2018 at the DOST-TAPI Audio-Visual Room.

Led by invited resource speaker Ms. Jogee G. Dela Cruz from JBDC Occupational Health and Safety Environment Consultancy, the two-day training provided the Institute with a new structure of standard focusing on risk-based thinking.

DOST-TAPI’s migration to the new ISO reflects the Institute’s flexibility to change and adhere towards quality management system for greater customer consideration.

ISO 9001:2015 puts greater emphasis on leader engagement as the standard helps address organizational risks and opportunities in a structured manner.

Over the years, the Institute utilizes knowledge resources by cooperating with external partners as its customers lie beyond the boundaries of a specific sector.

Since the acquisition of ISO 9001:2008, DOST-TAPI has increased efficiency and improved service within the delivery units.

Due to the increasing uncertainties in delivering the programs and services of the Institute, costs and risks must be anticipated and possible solutions should be identified.

The ISO 9001:2015 certification is expected to take place before September 2018.
