A representative from TUV SUD, Mr. Alan Fabella visited the LGU to conduct the surveillance audit to the pilot offices – Mayor’s Office,
Solid Waste Management Office, Municipal Planning and Development Coordinator, Municipal Engineer, Waterworks and Rural Health Unit I.
The surveillance audit was performed following the awarding of the certification last June 2011 to monitor continuous compliance and implementation of standards set by the local EMS audit team.

he will continuously support the project.
