MSC takes pride as 1st ISO Certified SUC in MIMAROPA

Marinduque State College, the lone state college in heart of the Philippines, now takes pride as the first ISO 9001:2008 Certified State College in Region IV-B. Through this certification, MSC is steadfast in its commitment to maintain the highest degree of excellence in the mandated functions towards meeting customer satisfaction by adhering to globally competitive standards and geared to further establish linkages towards ASEAN Integration.

The certification was awarded on February 28, 2017 at Meranti Hotel, Quezon City with the presence of CHED Commissioner and MSC Board of Trustees Chairperson Dr. Minella C. Alarcon, Mr. Tristan Arwen G. Loveres - Managing Director of TUV Rheinland Philippines and Ms. Evangeline Macariola – Director for Advocacy and Institutional Development  from the Development Academy of the Philippines.  

MSC’s journey to ISO certification began in 2013 initiated by then President Dr. Romulo H. Malvar (now CHED Regional Director - CAR) during his term. This quest has been sustained when Dr. Leodegario M. Jalos, Jr. assumed the position as Officer-In-Charge paving the way for the conduct of series of trainings and seminars. Upon the assumption of Dr. Merian C. Mani as President in 2015, it has been one of her top priority to pursue ISO Certification and ensure quality and excellence in the services that MSC provides to its stakeholders.

The series of trainings, orientation seminars and documentary preparation have been carried out through the assistance of the Development Academy of the Philippines and the final stages of audit by TUV Rheinland Philippines.

This quest has been carried out through the painstaking efforts of the MSC ISO Core Team spearheaded by Dr. Julieta L. Go as the Quality Management Representative, Mr. Raoul J. Magcamit as Internal Quality Auditor Team Leader, Mrs. Maria Morena V. Santos as Document Controller and Records Custodian, along with other MSC officials who have been part of the different teams behind MSC’s Quality Management System.

Now,MSC stands with pride along with other ISO certified institutions including Jose Rizal Memorial State University, Catanduanes State University, Southern Luzon State University, Aklan State University and Cavite State University.

With the ASEAN Integration in its second year since its establishment in 2015, ISO Certification ensures MSC a stronger link to international affiliations.
