Denarau Corporation Limited (DCL) achieved a milestone after being accredited with ISO9001:2105 certification on 9th June 2017.

Telarc SAI Limited (Telarc), a New Zealand based international certification body and accreditation agency, went through a thorough audit and conformity assessment on DCL prior to this accreditation.

Chairman of DCL, Pramesh Sharma said, “the Management Team of DCL have been busy putting together a quality management system that will make DCL internationally certified and able to meet stakeholder needs and expectations as well as comply with all relevant regulatory and statutory requirements.”

To achieve these objectives, DCL were required to establish a quality management system and to demonstrate how it will continually try and improve the suitability, adequacy, sustainability and effectiveness of an ISO system.

The system known as ISO 9001:2015 was first published in 1987, updated in 1994, and again in 2000 and 2008.

The current version was published in September 2015 and it is the fifth edition of ISO9001.

This system cancels and replaces all previous editions.

To conform to the ISO9001 standards, DCL were required to meet every prerequisite of the standard.

Telarc reviewed and assessed all requirements in areas of DCL’s structure, objectives, risks, processes and process interactions. Telarc also considered the competency of DCL’s personnel and the needs and expectations of its stakeholders.

In today’s business world, having this certification gives DCL recognition and credibility of their commitment to compliance and an internationally recognised quality management system.

General Manager Security, Compliance & Risk of DCL, Neil Parsons, led the process for the accreditation after reviewing and formulating improved quality management systems.

To maintain their certification, DCL will continue to strive towards the continual improvement of their quality management structure.

Mr. Sharma further added that this accreditation will enhance all stakeholders’ investment on Denarau Island.
