Matáv's technical area qualified as excellent

Budapest, November 2, 1999

SGS Hungária, an independent certification office of the SGS Group certified through a site audit conducted in October 1999 that the quality system developed at Matáv's technical area conforms to the ISO 9002 standard. It was the first successful ISO certification of the company's technical area (previously the Training Directorate (1997) and the Operator and Information Services Center (1998) obtained quality certificates.

The quality system now certified regulates the activities carried out by the Data Communications Center and the Key Customers Center. The activities of these Centers include installation, operation and fault repair processes connected with packet switched data network (X.25), managed leased line data network (MLLN), satellite data network, and video and audio transmission services.

The quality system ensures better regulated work processes, better and more precise executive information, efficient management and work. The company often bids at tenders invited by multinational companies for construction of data communication networks, and ISO certification of the bidder can be a great competitive advantage in the bid qualification phase.

Development of this system has not been completed with this step. The company is going to gradually extend the quality system to all organization units of the Operations and Maintenance Directorate and wishes to obtain ISO certification by June 2000.
