Baku Transport Agency has received two international ISO certificates. To this end, German Tüv Thüringen conducted an audit of compliance with the requirements of ISO 9001: 2015 (Quality Management) and ISO 14001: 2015 (Environmental Management) in the Agency. As a result, the Baku Transport Agency received ISO 9001: 2015 and ISO 14001: 2015 certificates.

Standard ISO 9001: 2015 (Quality Management) is based on the principles of citizenship, a systematic approach to management, participation in the organization, continuous improvement, decision-making based on facts. The introduction of a quality management system indicates that every process taking place in the urban transport system is based on transparent mechanisms and rules. The transparency between the beginning and the end of each process is obvious and consistent with the mechanism used.

Organization of the Agency's activities in accordance with ISO 9001: 2015 will ensure the quality of work.

ISO 14001: 2015 (Environmental Management) is a tool for urban transport that identifies environmental impacts, assesses impacts, and then minimizes these impacts. Obtaining the aforementioned international certification will give impetus to the improvement of the environment and the work carried out in these areas.

One of the main tasks of the modern era is environmental safety and environmental protection. In recent years, systematic measures have been taken to create a more environmentally friendly transport environment. These are projects aimed at combating illegal parking and increasing road capacity. At the same time, the necessary infrastructure is being created and the bus fleet is being updated to increase people's interest in using public transport. The availability of LNG and electric vehicles during the renewal of the bus fleet was a key condition. In a short time, the number of buses with an LNG engine in public transport was increased to 600 units.

Note that in the future, other international standards are also expected to be applied in accordance with the activities of the Baku Transport Agency.
