The Integrated Data Services Limited (IDSL) has been awarded International Management System (IMS) Certification award.
The award, by a German-American Certification Company, DQS Management System Nigeria Limited, was in recognition of its safety and service delivery to humanity and corporate world.

Receiving the award at the weekend, Managing Director of IDSL, Engr Ferdinand A. Bariwei said the journey towards achieving the feat was not an easy one, but with the support of IDSL top management, staff and the resolute commitment and hard work of the IDSL ISO Committee members, the strategic objective of becoming ISO 9001, 45001 and 140001 certified was achieved in the first quarter of this year.
He said: “With these ISO Certifications, IDSL is poised to offer quality services in line with global best practices. Our new Certification status will also open-up the Company to attract more jobs locally and globally, it is, therefore, hoped that these Certifications will go a long way to market the capacity, ability, corporate responsibility and goodwill of the Company to its clients and the public.
