This was made possible through a non-reimbursable grant from the European Development Fund and facilitated by the Caribbean Export Agency.

Being an ISO-certified company provides an opportunity for us to let our customers and other interested parties know that we are committed to quality products and services. ISO is the International Organization for Standardization. Many companies are encouraged to meet the requirements for ISO 9001 Certification, because the standards implemented through documentation, provide an opportunity for improvement in the delivery of products and services.

Further, companies with ISO 9001 certification have the possibility of their products and services being utilized or traded on the international market; this is most obvious in the Guyana context since the advent of oil exploration and subsequent discovery. Most international companies coming to the shores of Guyana, to set up the business, or to create joint venture relationships, require international standards are met by both parties.

Hence, meeting customer satisfaction and exceeding their expectation is one of the objectives and motivations for us choosing the implementation of this particular standard. We, therefore, encourage other like-minded companies to pursue this achievement. Global Compliance Service Inc. (GCS) in Guyana stands ready as the only local certifying body to perform an external audit on your Quality Management Systems, in compliance with the ISO 9001:2015 standard, which could lead to certification and thus boost economic activities in Guyana.
