Introduction

What is Integrated Quality Management System (IQMS)?

The Integrated Quality Management System for UiTM is an amalgamation of the following:

  • Quality Assurance and Enhancement Policy (QAEP)
  • ISO 9001-based quality management system
  • COPIA or Code of Practice for Institutional Audit requirements
  • all levels of study programmes at UiTM - from undergraduate to post graduate

With the integration of the two, UiTM is leveraging on the ISO 9001 as an accepted quality management system standard worldwide and COPIA as the series of guidelines and codes of practice for higher education in Malaysia.

The scope of QMS implementation includes the following provisions - research, teaching and learning, services and community engagement, and sustainability - depending on the area of concentration of the Responsibility Centre.

IQMS is previously referred to as QMS V2.
