May 13, 2019 – The Northwest Samar State University (NWSSU) is now ISO-certified after it passed the assessment of third party external auditor AJA Registrars.

The ISO 9001:2015 certification is valid until March 29, 2022, which covers all the quality management systems (QMS) of the university, namely, management of learning; development of research and extension; and management of support services for higher and advance education.

AJA representative Mary Rose Simene formally awarded the certificate to NWSSU president Dr. Benjamin L. Pecayo on Friday at the Business Development Center, Main Campus. The awarding ceremony was witnessed by the NWSSU ISO core team, faculty, and key officials from both campus, as well as representatives from Development Academy of the Philippines (DAP), its partner.

Simene stressed that the “premium of ISO 9001 standards is continual improvement, you cannot stay the same way where you were first got certification.” She said that the university must keep improving and enhancing its processes, performances, and reputation.

QMS is a set of policies, processes and procedures of an organization that are necessary for planning and implementation. The 9001:2015 standard is based on a number of quality management principles including a strong customer focus, the motivation and implication of top management, the process approach and continual improvement, according to the ISO official website.

On his part, Dr. Pecayo accepted the challenge, and declared that the battle is just beginning. “Nagsisimula naman tayo to overcome these challenges, barriers… for another milestone of the university.”

After the ISO, Dr. Pecayo now eyes for the SUC Level III, which is also part of his administration’s strategic goals before the end of his term on 2022. Last year, NWSSU was also awarded the Maturity Level 2 in Program to Institutionalize Meritocracy and Excellence in Human Resource Management (PRIME-HRM) by the Civil Service Commission (CSC). |PREA
