After acquiring the ISO 9001:2015 certification last December 2019, the Philippine Fisheries Development Authority (PFDA) – Central Office (CO) and Zamboanga Fish Port Complex (ZFPC) are now preparing for the surveillance audit this coming 4th quarter of 2020.
The Internal Quality Audit (IAQ) Team led by Ms. Gloria P. Vasquez conducted a 2-day training covering ISO 9001: 2015 and ISO 19011:2018 requirements and standards, September 17-18.
The training aims to prepare and equip the members of the PFDA IQA from PFDA – CO and ZFPC to serve as the certified auditors for the first party audit activities as part of the requirement prior to the surveillance audit to be conducted by TUV Rheinland, third party certifying body for International Organization for Standardization (ISO).
To maintain the required health standards on physical distancing due to the pandemic, the training was completely conducted virtually via Google Meet.
Mr. Christopher M. Adlawan served as the training resource person.
According to the ISO website, ISO 9001:2015 is an international standard that “specifies requirements for a quality management system (QMS) to consistently provide products and services that meet customer and regulatory requirements”.
Meanwhile, ISO 19011:2018 provides a “standard which identifies guidelines for auditing management systems including managing an audit program, the principles of auditing, and the evaluation of individuals responsible for managing the audit programs”.
