  • indexGhana Oil Company Limited (GOIL) has been presented with a certificate as evidence of being ISO/79001:2008 certified with the International Organisation for Standardisation (ISO).

    The certificate was presented by Mrs Gauri Bhagwat, a Lead Auditor and Trainer for Quality/Environmental and Occupational Health and Safety Management Systems for International Register of Certificated Auditors, UK (IRCA- UK), at a ceremony held at the GOIL Executive Centre, Cantonments in Accra.

    It was received by the Managing Director of GOIL, Mr Patrick Akorli.

    Mrs Bhagwat applauded GOIL for having maintained quality practices in every facet of the business, adding that organisations that established and maintained internationally recognised management systems could be independently audited by certification bodies.

    In his comments, Mr Akorli said, “The ISO programme started in 2008 with a two-week intensive awareness training for all staff from management to junior level. Within the four-year period, GOIL had to review our processes, procedures and forms, following which there was internal audit for two months.”

    He added that the final external audit was conducted before certification in December, 2014 and the certification was approved in January, 2015.

    He said GOIL was now poised to venture onto the international platform to compete with multinational companies in the oil marketing industry.

    Mr Akorli thanked management and staff and other stakeholders who in diverse ways played significant roles in making the certification possible.
