AN international certifying body now warrants the standards of management of the Mines and Geosciences Bureau (MGB) 7.
After rigorous audit and assiduous evaluation of the various processes and manuals, the international body granted MGB 7 the International Organization for Standardization (ISO) 9001:2015 Certification.
This certification capped the regional bureau’s arduous two-year journey towards establishing a quality management system in the geology division and its support services in the finance and administrative division.
“It is an honor to be at par with the international standards of management. The certification is an assurance that the geosciences division can ensure consistent quality service to our clients, partners and stakeholders,” said MGB 7 Officer-in-Charge Efren B. Carido. “We will maintain our commitment in continually improving the delivery of quality public service.”
AJA Registrars, an independent third-party body, granted and registered the certification last Jan. 17.
With the certification, MGB 7 is more focused on monitoring and measuring the performance and various operations to continuously enhance the management processes to improve client satisfaction.
“This is a promise that the regional bureau will consistently fulfill its mandate and address the citizen’s needs and expectations,” Carido said.
ISO Certification is part of the national government’s direction for all agencies to demonstrate effective management and good government through its quality processes.
