The Mines and Geosciences Bureau Regional Office No. V (MGB R.O.-V) has successfully renewed its ISO Certification for ISO 9001:2015 Quality Management System (QMS) after a rigorous remote audit made by the certifying body, SOCOTEC Certification International formerly known as AJA Registrars, Inc. on June 8 and 9, 2021.

In the remote audit, SOCOTEC noted the positive findings, opportunities for improvement, and observations. The recertification aims to confirm the continued conformity and effectiveness of the management system, and its continued relevance and applicability for the scope of certification.

SOCOTEC Lead Auditor Mr. Erwin Quinto further congratulated MGB R.O.-V’s effort for having zero non-conformity. Achieving ISO 9001 certification is similar to having a “quality seal”, through certification, MGB R.O.-V will be known as an organization that commits to quality service, and thus, will achieve a higher level of trust and credibility from the public.

MGB R.O.-V’s next ISO Surveillance Audit is scheduled in 2022.
