The Institute of Quality Management has conducted a workshop on Environmental Management System (ISO 14001:2015) on 22 December 2016 at UUM Convention Centre, Seminar Hall C.

This workshop aims to provide understanding, knowledge and early exposure to the internal quality auditors of the university in relation to the Environmental Management System (ISO 14001:2015) including the main clauses concerned. In addition to that, the workshop is also an enhancement to the TRIPLE ISO (OYAGSB) workshop; SR10 and ISO 9001:2015 that are expected to be certified in April 2017.

The guest speaker for the workshop was Mrs. Armpon A / L I Weng a Principal Consultant of Global Jayamaju Sdn. Bhd. Mrs Armpon has comprehensive experience of more than 20 years as ISO Consultant including the ISO 9001 (Quality Management System) and the ISO 14001 (Environmental Management System).

The Deputy Director for the Division of Quality Excellence System of IPQ, Dr Noor Hasmini Abd Ghani in her prefatory speech urged all auditors to fully utilise all the knowledge acquired in the workshop to further enhance their auditing knowledge. She also took the opportunity to explain about the TRIPLE ISO implementation schedule at OYA level and the transition process of ISO 9001:2015 at the University level, and also informed them of the important dates for the coming workshops      

In conclusion IPQ would like to thank all the auditors who attended the workshop and hope that all parties involved will be better prepared in assisting OYAGSB in the transition process of ISO 9001:2015 and TRIPLE ISO at the University level. All knowledge gained is hoped to be utilised as much as possible in assisting UUM to remain competitive not only in Asia but also internationally competitive.
