This is the first time the auditors handled a non-profit organization applying for this ISO Certification, making CFC ANCOP the only known non-government/non-profit organization recommended for ISO 9001:2015 Quality Management System (QMS) – Certification.

CAGFI President Rudy Gaspillo, together with the CAGFI Team and auditor, visited one of the ANCOP project sites in Cavinti, Laguna, where the auditor noted that the shelter construction is of high quality. The TÜV Auditor likewise gave recommendations and opportunities for improvement intended to contribute to the continuous improvement of the site’s system.

In a statement, Gaspillo said, “This is a new beginning for us to be able to implement the tremendous work/programs ahead in a more efficient way that will benefit our brethren in need—for the glory of our Lord!”
