Speaking of the challenge presented in implementing the ISO system in an area with such a broad ranging remit as the Inheritance Enquiry Unit, the Minister added that their success underlined “…the Department’s continued determination, and the commitment of our staff, to providing the highest quality in the delivery of services”.

The Minister also said that he looked forward to seeing many other areas of the Department taking up this challenge and “…maintaining the rate of certification success achieved by the Department over recent years, which places the Department to the forefront in terms of certification to ISO 9001 in a public service context.
