Korean outfit’s IT services win global recognition

The Korean Federation of Community Credit Cooperatives (KFCC) announced on Dec. 22 that it had gained a certificate in info-tech services from the International Organization for Standardization (ISO).

The certificate is the ISO/IEC 20000-1:2018, which is designed to provide global assurance in the quality of the IT services any entity delivers.

By granting the certificate, the ISO recognized the KFCC’s best practices in offering consistent and reliable services in the IT field, according to the KFCC.

“We have gone all-out to provide more stable IT services to our members and customers. Such efforts have led to winning the ISO certificate,” a KFCC official said.

“In time with the 60th anniversary of our foundation next year, we will double our efforts to further improve our IT services.”

Representing some 1,300 financial cooperatives in South Korea, the KFCC is the leading apex organization for the country’s cooperative banking sector.

Currently, Chairman Park Cha-hoon is heading the entity.
