The Center for International Trade Expositions and Missions (CITEM), the export promotion arm of the Department of Trade and Industry (DTI), has maintained its International Organization Standardization (ISO) 9001:2015 certification for its whole management system for five straight years following the second surveillance audit by SOCOTEC last 21 November 2022.

ISO 9001 is the world's most recognized Quality Management System (QMS) standard. It aims to help organizations meet the needs of their customers and other stakeholders more effectively. This is achieved by building a framework to ensure consistent quality in providing goods and/or services.
