he Agency for Quality Assurance in the Galician University System (ACSUG), following its general objectives of service to society and analysis and improving of the Galician University System, decided the implementation of a Quality Assurance System according the ISO 9001 standard. In 2006, ACSUG certified the system, which was in force until 2009.
In 2009, ACSUG decided to extend the scope of the system, including all the activities carried out and integrating the ISO 14001 standard of environmental management in the existing system. In 2010, ACSUG has carried out the integration of the Eco-Management and Audit Scheme (EMAS) in the internal management system. After that, ACSUG has achieved the external certifications by AENOR in the ISO 9001, the ISO 14001 and the Eco-Management and Audit Scheme (EMAS) standards. ACSUG has been the first European university quality assurance agency which achieved these certifications.
In 2023, ACSUG, due to the special circumstances of the change to the new premises, located in Ciudad de la Cultura, is forced to modify the scope of its Internal Management System, with the removal of the environmental certifications. As a result, the ACSUG Internal Management System is only based on the ISO 9001 Standard.
AENOR is a member of the international certification network (IQNet), so the certification obtained by ACSUG is recognized internationally.
