Ms. Perla F. Baje of the Philippine Accreditation Bureau discusses better regulatory compliance through accreditation.

The Philippine Accreditation Bureau (PAB) demonstrated its support to the Healthcare Service Industry by participating in the Board of Investments’ (BOI) “International Certification Awareness Seminar” held at the Makati Palace Hotel in Makati City on 13 December 2019. The BOI Infrastructure and Services Industries Service (BOI-ISIS) division invited participants from healthcare facilities that are licensed by the Department of Health (DOH) or officially accredited by the Department of Tourism (DOT which have the potential of expanding the Medical Travel and Wellness Tourism Industry.

The activity aims to improve the healthcare services delivery system of the country and prepare the growing Medical Tourism and Wellness Travel Industry resulting in more income generation and employment opportunities for healthcare personnel.  It also hopes to influence both the private and public DOH-licensed health care facilities to consider international certification to achieve global competitiveness through higher standards of safety and quality in healthcare services as mandated under the new Universal Health Care Act of 2019.

PAB through Ms. Perla F. Baje, the Head of the Laboratory Accreditation Division (LAB) shared how the bureau contributes to better regulatory compliance by performing its mandate of accrediting conformity assessment bodies and working with other agencies to create more streamlined conformity assessment services. Harmonized conformity assessment provides regulators with a means to enforce national health safety and environmental legislation.
