With the aim of carrying out this requirement, the Faculty of Biology participated in the first call of the ACSUG to “design” a Quality Guarantee System (SGC) according to the FIDES/AUDIT programme in collaboration with the Quality Area of the University of Vigo, obtaining the certification of the design the 30th January, 2009.
The next step was to certify the adequate implementation of SGC.

After the visit of an external auditor team, the faculty received the certification from the agency on 18th November, 2013, revealing that the SGC of the Faculty of Biology had been introduced following the guidelines established by the FIDES/AUDIT programme. It is valid until 2019 and it was revised in 2016.
The framework documentation of the SGC of the Faculty of Biology is:
