After a rigorous day of interviews, presentation of documents and records, and validation of compliance to ISO Requirements, the audit proper came to an end at 4:00 in the afternoon. During the Closing Meeting, CIP commended the strong maintenance of IMS, along with its good points and areas of conformity to address organizational risks and opportunities to support the achievement of DMCI performance objectives and stakeholders’ needs and expectations.
