Wednesday, February 06, 2019
(Updated) CFC ANCOP Global Foundation, Inc. (CAGFI) has been officially ISO 9001:2015 Quality Management System (QMS) certified by its certifying body, TÜV Rheinland Philippines, Inc. after the release of the certificate last February 11, 2019.
After the extensive preparations that started in May 2018, CFC ANCOP has passed the two stages of certification audit, the first in December 13, 2018 and the second on January 28-29, 2019.
On the official report, which first reflected the recommendation of the awarding of certificate and with zero non-conformity, the certifying body commended the efforts of CFC ANCOP to standardize the systems and procedures of all its programs and departments.
The auditors included the following positive findings in their report:
The TÜV Audit team stated that, overall, CFC ANCOP has established and maintains an effective system to ensure compliance with its policy and objectives, and that the organization’s management system complies with, adequately maintains and implements the requirements of the standard.
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!”
CFC ANCOP is grateful to all the people who made this dream possible—the CAGFI staff and CFC Laguna, who dedicated their time and effort to process everything needed for the certification; CFC-Global Mission Center staff for supporting ANCOP; the brethren from Couples for Christ who actively share their relevant experience and support; PJ Mungcal, the ISO consultant, for sharing his expertise, time and treasure; the auditors from TÜV Rheinland Philippines, Inc., Mr. JF Faustorilla, Jr. and Mr. J. Aquino, for their excellent insights and services; and to everyone who fervently prayed for the fulfillment of the certification.
With this milestone, CFC ANCOP assures its excellent services to brethren in need, and to improve and strive for excellence in answering the cry of the poor.
