Davao Light is now Asset Management-Certified

Davao Light & Power Company, Inc. earned its fourth ISO (International Organization for Standardization) Certification after it passed the 3-day audit last December 2022 for the Asset Management System (AMS) with no minor and major non-conformities.

Based on DQS Certification Philippines Inc., Davao Light is compliant with the requirements of ISO 55001:2014 which is an asset management system standard with the primary objective of helping organizations effectively manage the lifecycle of their assets.

We at Davao Light are ecstatic that we are now AMS certified,” said Davao Light President and COO Rodger S. Velasco. “This is our fourth ISO Certification, which shows that we stay committed to becoming a world-class power distribution utility. Our assets such as our lines and poles are key to delivering the best service to our customers, so their management is vital to our operations.”

One of its best applications is during power outages when company departments and teams involved in power interruption response and resolution will need working communication equipment, complete mapping, and hardware information, among others. To effectively deliver their tasks - from the dispatching of the crew, pulling out line hardware and poles, and coordinating between teams and crews - an intricate but systematic process is essential. Without a manageable, organized system, and complete and accurate information on assets, a company's daily operations will encounter problems. This could result in customers experiencing delayed and inefficient resolutions to their issues or concerns.

By implementing AMS, Davao Light will be able to continually improve its operational efficiency, and ensure the efficient management and utilization of its assets such as substations and vehicles. Through AMS, the company will also effectively manage and mitigate risks, avoid unnecessary costs and resource wastage, and further enhance the organization's capability.

Davao Light also has certifications in ISO 9001:2015 or the Quality Management System (QMS), ISO 45001:2018 or the Occupational Health and Safety (OH&S) Management System, and in ISO 14001:2015 or the Environmental Management (EM) System.

To our customers, these certifications translate to the faster and more efficient delivery of service. These further ensure that we can provide - at the most reasonable cost - safe and reliable power which is what they need most,” Velasco added.

Davao Light, an AboitizPower subsidiary, gives rise to solutions that pave the way for the development of the communities in its franchise area by providing better service to its customers. This is achieved through the advancement of its processes and technologies.
