SAN FERNANDO CITY, La Union—The  Department of Science and Technology in Region 1 now has an upgraded international standard of management after receiving the Certificate of Registration with ISO 9001:2015 from Certification International Philippines, Inc.

The DOST certificate number CIP/4208/09/01/621, recognizes that the DOST-1 and its Provincial S&T (Science and Technology) Centers will now operate based on the Quality Management Systems (QMS) requirement of ISO 9001:2015 version.

The ISO 9001:2015 is a new version of QMS standards that deals with the risk-based thinking process approach in implementing the organization’s programs and projects towards the fulfillment of the demand of quality service to its clients.
