DTI adopts the International Standard on competence of Occupational Health and Safety Personnel as a Philippine National Standard

DTI adopts the International Standard on competence of Occupational Health and Safety Personnel as a Philippine National Standard

The Department of Trade and Industry’s Bureau of Philippine Standards (DTI-BPS) adopted the International Standard (IS) on Conformity assessment – Requirements for bodies providing audit and certification of management systems-Part 10: Competence requirements for auditing and certification of occupational health and safety management systems, as a Philippine National Standard (PNS) – International Organization for Standardization (ISO)/International Electrotechnical Commission (IEC) 17021-10:2018.

PNS ISO/IEC 17021-10:2018 specifies additional competence requirements for personnel involved in the audit and certification process for an occupational health and safety (OH&S) management system and complements the existing requirements of ISO/IEC 17021-1.

DTI-BPS Director-in-Charge, Engr. James E. Empeño emphasizes, “The PNS ISO/IEC 17021-10 ensures that auditors have the right skills relating to terminology, principles, concepts, tools, and techniques to audit effectively.”

The PNS ISO/IEC 17021-10:2018 is intended to guarantee a harmonized approach to the accreditation of an ISO 45001 certification, and will ultimately serve certification, accreditation, and regulatory bodies by confirming that auditing and certification decisions about ISO 45001 have been made by those who have the competence to do so.

The ISO/IEC 17021-1:2015 Conformity assessment – Requirements for bodies providing audit and certification of management systems – Part 1: Requirements, specifies qualifications for bodies providing audit and certification of management systems. It gives generic requirements in the field of quality, the environment and other types of management systems. Such bodies are referred to as certification bodies.

The DTI-BPS is the National Standards Body of the Philippines. It is the Philippines’ member to the International Organization for Standardization (ISO) and the International Electrotechnical Commission (IEC).
