The Philippine Railways Institute marked another milestone as it launched its Quality Management System (QMS) on September 27. It has formally inked its commitment to further improve its processes and better provide quality services to its stakeholders through establishing an effective QMS.

With the guidance of the Development Academy of the Philippines through its Government Quality Management Program (GOMP), the PRI was able to establish its OMS through the issuance of Order No. 13, s. 2021 or the “An Order Establishing the Quality Management System of the Philippine Railways Institute and Ensuring Its Effective Implementation and Continual Improvement.”

In the first and second quarters of 2022, the PR will pursue its certification to ISO 9001:2015 Standard, which shall be kick-started by pre-assessment and certification audits by a third-party certifying body. Once certified, the PRI commits to effectively implement its QMS, continuously develop its products and services, and keep on improving its QMS.
