 Satyam certified by BVQI
By Peeyush Agnihotri

SATYAM Computer Services Ltd. has been found to be in accordance with the requirements of the new ISO 9001, 2000 International Standards, under the Tick IT scheme. It has become the first organisation in the world assessed by the BVQI (Bureau Veritas Quality International).

"It is particularly satisfying, as this achievement is the global first. This is remarkable, firstly because it was achieved within a month from the standards being released, and secondly because it covered all Satyam’s offices across India," Prabhu Sinha, quality chief of the organisation says.

It may be recalled that Satyam was one of the first 10 companies in the world to have been assessed at SEI CMM Level 5 in 1999. The company has around 9500 IT professionals who operate out of its state-of-the-art software development centers located in India, the USA, Japan, Singapore and the UK.


Accredited by 22 accreditation bodies, the BVQI is today the most widely recognised certification body in the world. In recent years, BVQI has assisted over 27,000 companies worldwide to achieve certification to ISO 9000 and other equivalent standards. Bureau Veritas formed BVQI in 1988 to respond to the worldwide need for third party management system certification.

Meanwhile, the company has also been rated one of the 10 most well-regarded companies in India in the prestigious 2000/2001 Review 200 survey conducted by the Hong Kong-based Far Eastern Economic Review.

Mr. David Plott, Managing Editor, Far Eastern Economic Review has invited Satyam Chairman, Mr. B. Ramalinga Raju to receive the award in Mumbai on March 29, at a ceremony organised by the publication in association with AT&T and Concert.
