TANJUNGPINANG – A spectacular achievement was recorded by UPT Perpustakaan UMRAH at the end of 2022. In achieving international recognition and standardization, on December 30, 2022, the Raja Ali Haji Maritime University Library (UMRAH) officially holds ISO 9001: 2015 certification from the United Kingdom United Accreditation Service (Accreditation Body: SGS UK). This achievement was achieved after the UPT Library passed three stages of audit and conformity check of the institutional management system in accordance with the 10 clauses of ISO 9001: 2015.

Achieving ISO 9001: 2015 certification means that UMRAH Library has met all the criteria required in the library organization management system according to the International Organization for Standardization (ISO). It is understood that ISO 9001: 2015 certification is only given when an organization has set appropriate quality objectives and implemented a standardized management system to achieve continuous quality improvement. Therefore, ISO 9001:2015 is the main standard applied by world-class institutions in maintaining their quality and credibility. The ISO 9001:2015 certificate is quality assurance and legitimate recognition of quality.

This result is an important step in developing the library towards a world class library according to the UMRAH 2024 Strategic Plan. UMRAH Chancellor, Prof. Agung Dhamar Syakti is very proud and interprets this result as success in several aspects. Among other things, this certificate is proof of the realization of good university governance, the implementation of a good management system, and proof of the quality commitment of the leadership and all UMRAH Library personnel, of course in line with the vision of SATU GURINDAM.

Head of University Library, Bony Irawan, M.Pd. explained that the achievement of this certificate is only a new starting point for UMRAH Library to improve the quality of its management and services on an ongoing basis, so that ISO 9001: 2015 certification can be maintained in the future.

Bony Irawan also expressed his gratitude to all parties who have played a role in the success of this certification, “Thank you to the leadership for their commitment to quality improvement, and thank you to the Library ISO Team for working hard in the Library ISO certification process,” he continued. “Hopefully the Library can always be an inspiration and an important support in achieving academic brilliance and UMRAH’s vision and mission,” concluded Bony.
