DOLE 2 now ISO 9001:2015 certified

TUGUEGARAO CITY, Cagayan --- Through hard work and dedication, the Department of Labor and Employment – Regional Office No. 2 (DOLE 2) successfully hurdled the transition audit of ISO from 9001:2008 to 9001:2015.

The transition audit conducted by Certification International Philippines, Inc. (CIP) last July 2018 found that the Provision of Labor and Employment Services of DOLE 2 passed the criteria required by ISO 9001:2015 and declared it compliant. The audit result, however, expect improved actions to potential non – conformities observed during the assessment.

The audit involved the Regional Office and the Field Offices in Cagayan, Isabela, Nueva Vizcaya, and Quirino, and it centered on the context of the organization, Quality Management System (QMS), and internal and external issues.

Regional Director, Atty. Sarah Buena S. Mirasol commended the efforts of DOLE 2 personnel for their hard work to improve the QMS of the department and for their cooperation during the tedious and lengthy preparation for the audit.

“I know that you all worked hard just for our office to be accredited and here we are reaping the fruits of our labor.  Ito po ay para sa ating mas pinatibay at patuloy na paghahatid ng serbisyong dekalidad sa mga nangangailangan. May we continue to work together in pursuit of excellence and quality service towards the satisfaction of our clients,” Director Mirasol said.

The department, being an ISO 9001:2015 certified, is now more determined to implement and maintain its quality management system for better public service and realization of the government’s aim of pagbabago. (END/JVP/RBE)
