SOMCO Renews ISO Certification
The ISO certification of Skyway O&M Corporation (SOMCO) under the triple standards of ISO 9001:2015, ISO 14001:2015 and OHSAS 18001:2007 has been renewed recently after the successful re-certification audit by SGS Philippines, Inc.
The three (3) international standards taken as one unified criterion comprise the whole Integrated Management System (IMS) on quality, environment and health & safety (QEHS) to which SOMCO subscribes and has continually maintained for the past 6 years.
With IMS certification, higher levels of customer satisfaction, environmental protection, health and safety are assured through adherence to best practices in implementing key services.
SGS also conducted a rigorous surveillance audit of SOMCO’s business continuity management system (BCMS) and recommended the company’s certification under ISO 22301:2012, which it has maintained for the past 4 years, continually assuring SOMCO’s motoring public and other stakeholders of planned responses to any emergencies along the Skyway System while business continuity is affirmed in terms of committed adherence to pre-established procedures in the recovery of all key services.
SOMCO remains to be the only BCMS-certified tollway operator in the country and the first in Southeast Asia.
