The Certification process of NCR's systems and procedures began with the First Stage Audit made on the 3rd of October 2019, followed by the Second Stage Audit on the 1Oth and 11th of March 2020. "The audit was tedious because of the peculiar interface of PRC-NCR and the Central Office in terms of some of its physical facilities and utilities," said Mr. L. Louis P. Valera, the Officer-ln-Charge of the Regional Office. "Before the certification process was completed, the COVID pandemic happened. lt sure made everything a lot more difficult, but it did not make it impossible for the PRCNCR team to bag the certification", he added.
The PRC-NCR Certification is valid for three (3) years, subject to annual surveillance audits' satisfactory results.
