IQAC ACTIVITIES

ISO Periodic Auditing 2017

The Quality Assurance of the institution is implemented through the Quality Management System (QMS) complying with the ISO 9001 : 2008 standards. The QMS is the document consisting of all processes and forms involved in the academic and administrative activities to implement the processes.
DNV - GL conducts External Auditing once in a year as an academic audit of the activities and suggests improvements. The audits are Certification (2001) or Recertification (2004, 2007, 2010, 2013, 2016) auditing (RCA) once in 3 years and Periodic Auditing (PA) once a year in the other 2 years. In 2001, the institution got certified in ISO 9001 : 2000 and in 2007 transitioned to ISO 9001 : 2008. The PA for 2017 was conducted successfully in November 29 and 30, 2017.


ISO Internal Auditor Training

Internal Audit is an important process which is conducted regularly at planned intervals to check the effectiveness of the implementation, maintenance and improvement of the QMS. The internal audit is done by certified internal auditors of the institution. In preparation of the transition to the new standards ISO 9001 : 2015, 20 teaching and non-teaching staff of the institution were trained to be ISO Internal Auditors on October 30 and 31, 2017 by a resource person from DNV - GL.
