The Governance Commission for GOCCS (GCG) passed the Recertification Audit conducted by TUV Rheinland auditors who recommended the award of ISO Certification 9001:2015 to the GCG valid for the next three years.
The Recertification Audit, conducted every three years, aims to assess the compliance of different offices of the GCG to its Quality Management System aligned with the Philippine National Standard for ISO 9001:2015.
After the one-day audit last June 30, 2023, the TUV Rheinland auditors found no non-conformity and reported several positive findings and opportunities for improvements.
The scope of the GCG’s Quality Management Systems covers the Provision of Corporate Policies and Standard Development and Corporate Governance Services which basically covers the services being provided by the agency to its stakeholders.
The Quality Management System of the GCG is a testament to its commitment to providing responsive and efficient services as aptly stated in its quality policy: “GCG is committed to becoming an esteemed institution for corporate governance, exemplifying the highest levels of professionalism in the stewardship of GOCCs to safeguard accountability, economic viability, and responsiveness to the needs of the Filipino.”.
GCG Chairperson, Justice Alex L. Quiroz (ret.), expressed gratitude and congratulations to all GGG employees for the successful recertification audit as he enjoined them to work together to sustain the positive findings, work on opportunities for improvement and strive to further improve the effectiveness of the GCG Quality Management System.
By maintaining its ISO Certification, the GCG walks the talk by leading through example as it requires GOCCs under its supervision to maintain their own Quality Management Systems and ISO Certification aimed at providing better services to its clients and the general public.
The Governance Commission remains steadfast in its mandate as the central advisory, oversight, and monitoring body for GOCCs, to institutionalize transparency, accountability, financial viability, and responsiveness in corporate governance by monitoring and evaluating the performance of GOCCs.
