ERBIL (Kurdistan24) – Rami Nuri, Mayor of Ankawa district, on Monday told Kurdistan24 that the Ankawa district administration will be the first administrative unit at the district level in the Kurdistan Region to receive the International Organization for Standardization (ISO) certificate. This achievement comes after seven months of training and participation in various human capacity-building courses.

The mayor also said that the administration received an international ISO certificate from the French company Bureau Veritas.

Regarding the importance of obtaining this international certificate, Nuri emphasized that the process aligns with the ninth cabinet of the Kurdistan Regional Government's (KRG) agenda to digitize businesses and streamline the processing of citizen transactions.

“Now, every citizen who has a transaction at the administration office experiences a waiting time of between 15 and 20 minutes. However, electronically, the transaction is processed efficiently in all rooms and the results are provided promptly,” he added.

ISO is an international standard-setting body composed of representatives from various national standards organizations. It develops and publishes standards, technical specifications, guidelines, and test methods for a wide range of products, services, and systems. ISO standards are voluntary, but they are often used to help governments, businesses, and consumers make informed decisions about products, services, and systems.
