ABSTRACT: This survey research aimed to determine the status of and compliance to and adherence to the quality standards system by the maritime schools in the Philippines. Frequency, mean and standard deviations were the descriptive statistics used and t-test, analysis of variance, stepwise multiple regression analysis and Pearson?s r were the inferential statistics used. The participants? perceived the status of the quality standards system among maritime schools as ?strong?. The participants? perceived the compliance with and adherence to the quality standards system among the maritime schools as ?very high?. Location of school, enrolment size, faculty size, size of support staff, accreditation, position in school, work experience and educational preparation are significant predictors of the status, compliance with and adherence to the quality standards system in maritime schools. No significant relationships existed between the participants? perception of the compliance and adherence to quality standards system among maritime schools and personal-related factors.
