Bahrain Ministry receives quality certification
Manama, January 2, 2013
Bahrain’s Ministry of Transportion has announced that the Air Navigation Directorate has passed the external audit of its quality management system according to the ISO9001:2008 certification requirement, which was conducted in March.
The milestone was achieved following the Cabinet directives for all directorates at the Civil Aviation Affairs to conform to ISO9001:2008 certification requirements, a statement from the Ministry said.
The audit was carried out by the Lloyds Register of Quality Assurance. The results of the audit were extremely positive, reflecting the commitment by all employees to quality and the achievement of the highest performance levels. Based on the audit, Lloyds issued the ISO certificate.
To ensure the application of the highest international standards, the Strategic Planning and Quality Assurance Directorate supervised the certification stages and facilitated the Air Navigation Directorate to fulfill all the requirements, the statement said.
All the directorates at the Civil Aviation Affairs have obtained ISO9001:2008, and their certification is reviewed and evaluated regularly by specialised leading international companies to ensure that they maintain the same standards of quality.
Bahrain’s Civil Aviation Affairs is the second government authority in the world to obtain ISO9001:2008, whereby all the directorates of the Civil Aviation Affairs have met the required standards in their operations and the services they provide, according to Lloyd’s register.
