BANDUNG, unpas.ac.id – Universitas Pasundan has already completed the 5th audit surveillance ISO 9001:2015 held by certification agency Llyod’s Register Quality Assurance (LRQA).
The audit was held for three days, from 23-25 February 2022. Audit surveillance is a monitoring required to be carried out by independent certification institution towards ISO-certified agency.
Vice Rector I for Academic Stuffs Prof. Dr. H. Jaja Suteja, SE., M.Si said that the focus visit consists of five work units which will be audited.
“These units include Community Service Institution, Research Institution, Food Technology Department (Faculty of Engineering), Management Department (FEB), as well as Information and Communication Technology Management Unit,” he explained, on Saturday, 26 February 2022.
Audit surveillance aims to determine whether the concerned departments still deserve to own ISO certification or not. Other than that, it was carried out as form of sustainable evaluation to ensure the commitment of the staffs in implementing the system of quality management.
In mid September 2021, Unpas had also undergone the 4th surveillance audit for Department of Biology Education (FKIP), Law Studies (Faculty of Law) and State Administration (FISIP).
“Before June 2022, there will be certificate renewal (CR) visit for updating the ISO 9001:2015 certificate,” he said.
The focus of CR visit is to evaluate management system which has been set; whether it changes or develops and still meets the requirements of SNI ISO 9001:2015.
Based on the ISO 9001:2015 surveillance visit report, it was generally concluded that education services at Unpas have been systemic and well-documented.
Aspects that are the focus of the audit include compliance with the ISO 9001:2015 standard and its requirements, a risk-based assessment approach, and identification of problems or findings that need to be improved.
“Alhamdulillah, there are no findings, both minor and major, but there are some notes for quality improvement,” he added.
Prof. Jaja continued, from the audit results, Unpas was still trusted to hold ISO 9001:2015 certificates for five departments, namely Food Technology, Biology Education, Management, Law Studies, and State Administration. (Reta)*
