The National Archives Receives Integrated Management System Certificate PAS 99:2012

The National Archives received the certificate of Integrated Management System (IMS) as per British standards PAS 99:2012; thus, it became one of the first government entities that received this international recognition.

This success comes after passing a series of thorough checks relating to integrated management system. This grants the National Archives global recognition that it applies four management systems: ISO 9001 Quality Management, ISO 14001 Environmental Management, BS OHSAS 18001 Health and Occupational Safety and IMS Integrated Management System.

HE Dr. Abdullah Al Reyes, director general of the National Archives, emphasized that receiving this modern system certification is an actual interpretation of the close monitoring of all NA activities and events by HH Sheikh Mansour bin Zayed Al Nahyan, Deputy Prime Minister, Minister of Presidential Affairs and Chairman of National Archives. This certification is the fruit of HH Sheikh Mansour’s directives to adopt best standards of excellence and latest global practices, to explore creativity and quality in all various sections and stages of work, and to keep abreast of the new developments to serve the mission of the NA which seeks to preserve the memory of the Nation and to enhance its identity and its heritage.

Dr. Al Reyes viewed this certification as a huge motivator for more modernization and development and to operate according to ideal performance standards.

This certification is granted by the British Standards Institution (BSI), which is a pioneering global organization in evaluating management systems and certification. The NA received this certification since all its sections and departments fulfilled all the global requirements and passed thorough testing of work mechanisms and standard requirements for all branches.
