DCH Auriga (Borneo) Sdn Bhd, an Asian-based integrated market management provider specialising in healthcare, FMCG, industrial (Dulux) and logistics services, achieved the ISO 9001:2015 and ISO 13485:2016 certification.

DCH Auriga (Borneo) Sdn Bhd General Manager King Seh Haur thanked Darussalam Enterprise (DARe) for the support through the Standard’s Consultancy Programme (SCP) where Arete Solutions was engaged as a consultant.

DCH Auriga (Borneo) Sdn Bhd began its ISO certification process in September 2020 and concluded the standards ISO 9001:2015 and ISO 13485:2016 after a two-stage certification audit by Bureau Veritas, a leading certification body that help companies, governments and public authorities reduce their risks in terms of health, quality, safety, environmental protection and social responsibility.

Through the process, the best practices are implemented within each department, highlighting the importance of achieving quality objectives, meeting customer’s requirements and continually improve the processes of the organisation.

This demonstrates compliance while improving stakeholder confidence, reducing risk and optimising performance. The company is also in the process of getting the Goods Distribution Practices (GDP) and Good Distribution Practice for Medical Devices (GDPMD) certifications.

“The team worked hard and with the certification, we will continuously deliver excellent service to our stakeholders in Brunei and abroad,” King said.

For over 50 years, the corporation helped partners bring in essential pharmaceutical and life science offerings to Asia with ethical integrity, partnership and transparency. Offering both commercial and logistics solutions, Auriga also has operations in Hong Kong, Macau, mainland China, Singapore, Thailand, Indonesia, Malaysia, Vietnam and the Philippines.

Auriga aims to connect the world’s leading healthcare and life sciences companies to care providers and patients across Asia with a comprehensive range of responsible and effective market management solutions.

ISO 9001:2015 aims to consistently provide products and services that meet customer and regulatory requirements, while ISO 13485:2016 specifies requirements for a QMS specifically for organisations that provides medical devices. Both certification processes aim to develop a robust Quality Management System (QMS) that drives continual improvement and is globally recognised and trusted.
