MANILA, Philippines — The Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) maintained its ISO 9001:2015 certification of its quality management system covering all core services across its main and extension offices.

The ISO 9001:2015 certification means the SEC adheres to world-class standards in the provision of regulatory services over the corporate sector, the capital market participants, and the securities and investments instruments market in the Philippines, as well as the protection of the investing public.

“Once again, the SEC has demonstrated its global competitiveness as the premier investor champion and catalyst of a deep, broad and informed investor-based capital market and more empowered business sector,” SEC chairperson Emilio Aquino  said.

The SEC first obtained ISO 9001:2015 Certification in 2018 for its quality management system covering the registration of partnerships and corporations doing business in the Philippines, and the licensing of capital market institutions and professionals.

The SEC then secured a recertification for ISO 9001:2015 in 2020, where it successfully expanded the scope of its ISO-certified quality management system to cover 122 document procedures from the initial 59.

“The ISO 9001:2015 re-certification is exceptionally meaningful to the SEC. As a customer-centric organization, we appreciate that it has provided us with an external and objective evaluation of the quality of our services based on international standards,” SEC Commissioner Karlo Bello said in his opening remarks during the awarding ceremony.

“We also take pride in the consistent assessment that we have been compliant with ISO 9001:2015 standards for the past three years and confident that we will continue to be so in the next three years and beyond, pandemic or no pandemic,” he said.
