Davao del Norte State College was one of the few State Universities and Colleges (SUCs) that was recognized by the Government Quality Management Committee (GQMC) for obtaining and retaining its ISO 9001:2015 Certification.

The Certificate of Recognition was formally awarded during the 7th GQMC Recognition Ceremony and Public Sector Quality and Productivity Improvement Forum last October 24, 2019 at the Philippine International Convention Center, Pasay City. The College was represented by Quality Management Head, Dr. Ma Melanie Nacino Edig.

GQMC is the policy-making body of the Government Quality Management Program (GMQP). The program aims to enhance citizen satisfaction and public sector productivity through strategic, government-wide quality improvement.

DNSC successfully received its ISO 9001:2008 Certification in 2018, rectifying the efficiency of its Quality Management System. On the same year, it began its transition preparations. In 2019, it finally received its ISO 9001:2015 after series of internal and external audits. Recently, it passed a Surveillance Audit which tested its adherence to world-class standards.

The College will continue to embody its Quality Policy Statement and strive to find the best way to serve its clients.
