Following NAAC accreditation, true to its commitment to quality, the college management decided to also get international recognition through ISO certification. With the help of a consultant, we developed the college specific Quality Management System (QMS) based on relevant clauses of the ISO 9001:2000 standard. This system was implemented systematically over a year from 2006 with the help of the relevant quality and procedure manuals. This finally culminated in the audit in June 2007.
The audit agency International Certification Services (ICS) sent its audit team of two members who conducted a thorough audit of the system for two days. At the concluding meeting, they highlighted several positive areas and pointed out some areas for improvement, and happily informed us that there were no negative areas. Subsequent to this, they submitted their report and recommended certification based on which the International certifying agency, Joint Accreditation System of Australia and New Zealand (JAS-ANZ) issued us the certificate on 17th July 2007.
Thus our college became, very proudly, the first `traditional degree’ college and that too a single faculty – Science – college in Western Maharashtra to get ISO certification. Today we have been certified to be compliant with the ISO 9001:2008 standard
