The Governance Commission for Government-Owned and Controlled Corporations (GCG) achieved its quality management system certification based on ISO 9001:2008 Standards last July 4, 2014 from TUV Rheinland Philippines, Inc.

GCG began working in January 2014 towards the ISO 9001:2008 certification of all of its processes, namely: (1) corporate policies and standards development, (2) corporate governance services, (3) legal services, and (4) administration and finance.

”Since its constitution, the Governance Commission has made it a point to set and commit its officers and staff to espouse professionalism in fulfilling its mandate, and the certification of compliance to ISO 9001:2008 is a manifestation that the core values of the Governance Commission are being put into good practice,” shared GCG Chairman Cesar L. Villanueva during the formal conferment of the certificate.

 Chairman Villanueva also stressed that GCG shall not ask of GOCCs that itself cannot do, “It is our ending goal to be exemplary public servants. Simply put, let us always walk the talk.” Since 2013, the Governance Commission has required all GOCCs to pursue ISO certification by 2016 at the latest.

TUV Rheinland Philippines, Inc. attested GCG’s compliance with ISO 9001:2008 Quality Management System Standard with the scope of “Provision of corporate policies and standards development and corporate governance services” after a 4-month process.

Chief Operating Officer Engineer Tristan Arwen G. Loveres awarded the certificate and pointed out that “To the general public, an ISO certification is simply a label for quality…however, the certification must be considered as a convincing and powerful testimony to the nobility of the vision of the officials, officers and staff of GCG– and the discipline, which order demands.”
