Several MWSS-CO employees underwent an orientation seminar on ISO 9001:2015 with Risk-based approach training last May 15-16, 2018 at the Estancia De Lorenzo San Mateo, Rizal.
The interactive lectures and workshops were facilitated by Mr. Rene Liamzon from TUV Nord aiming to grasp the value and principles of the ISO 9001:2015 with which MWSS hopefully targets to get certified this year on project management.
ISO, which stands for International Organization for Standardization, is the world’s largest developer of voluntary international standards. Having different series of standards, some key changes of the ISO 9001:2015 from the previous version (ISO 9001:2008) include increased emphasis on Risk Management, increased flexibility in documentation, increased emphasis on achieving value for the organization and its customers. Interactive workshops gave the employees first-hand experience on how to fulfill the ISO 9001:2015 requirements as applied to the organization’s in-depth scope and context, specifically focusing on project management and its supporting functions.
