The ISO 9001: 2015 certificate issued by Worldwide Quality Assurance (WQA), is an International Certification Agency based in the United Kingdom (UK), which provides certification for various management systems.

The above was said by BAZNAS’s Chairman, Prof. Bambang Sudibyo in a press conference held at the BAZNAS Headquarters, in Jakarta, on Monday 3 February 2020.

The Deputy Chairman of BAZNAS, Zainulbahar Noor; the Asia Pacific Regional WQA Commissioner, Novian Putra; BAZNAS Managing Director, Arifin Purwakananta and Operations Director, Wahyu TT Kuncahyo, also present at the event.

The ISO 9001: 2015 audit process was carried out in mid-December 2019, with the scope of the inspection in the BAZNAS’s units.

Prof. Bambang said that the achievement of the ISO 9001: 2015 certificate was a clear proof that BAZNAS had carried out professional, transparent and accountable management.

“Alhamdulillah, BAZNAS received an incredible award in this 19th anniversary (by getting the ISO 9001: 2015 certificate again). This will be a trigger for our enthusiasm as a zakat governing body, to continue to be at the forefront in helping the government to eradicate poverty in Indonesia based on the credible management.” Said Prof. Bambang.

In addition, Prof. Bambang also said the importance of ISO certification in the management of zakat is to foster public confidence that zakat, infaq, and shadaqah that people have donated, are managed well, professionally, and transparently.

“Hopefully, this ISO certificate will increase people's sense of trust to pay zakat, and donations with BAZNAS. We also encourage BAZNAS at the provincial and district or city level and Private Zakat Institutions (LAZ) throughout Indonesia, to implement the ISO management for maximum zakat management,” said Prof. Bambang.

BAZNAS has previously carried out the ISO system since 2009. But for the most recent certificate (ISO 9001: 2015), it was the first time that BAZNAS obtained in 2017.

For 2020, BAZNAS will implement the ISO 27001 on an international standard information security management system that is currently still being developed in the operations directorate.

This system is to ensure that BAZNAS has control over information security over the process of managing zakat which might pose a risk or disruption. Also, BAZNAS will implement the ISO 37001: 2016 system regarding anti-bribery management.
