Technology team has demonstrated great emphasis on leadership management, evidenced its capacity to address organizational risks, and established simplification of the language in its management systems. ISO 9001:2015 sets a higher standard to quality management system than its predecessor; focusing this time also on performance through a process-oriented approach. It also takes into consideration factors like risk-based thinking, while simultaneously employing a Plan-Do-Check-Act cycle at all levels.

Speaking at the occasion, the President & CEO of Ufone Rashid Khan emphasized that,” Globalization and its associated challenges demand standardization of processes under a structured QA program”. 

CEO of BV Talib Hussain also stressed on the importance of standardization for businesses today. “The certification to ISO 9001:2015 recognizes Ufone’s commitment in monitoring and managing quality across all functions of its Technology Division”. The International Standards Organization (ISO) reviews its standards every five years in order to remain current in an ever-changing business environment. ISO 9001 sets quality management standards and guides businesses and organizations to ensure their products and services consistently meet customer's requirements and that commitment to quality is constantly improving. ISO 9001:2015 is the most relevant certification to date, replacing the previous ISO 9001:2008 standards.
