Certification Management Committee (CMC)


The Certification Management Committee is responsible for assisting the Institute in developing policies relating to the impartiality of its certification activities and to counteract any tendency to allow commercial or other considerations to prevent the consistent objective provision of certification activities. The committee will also advise on matters that may be affecting confidence in certification,
including openness and public perception. At least once annually, the committee will conduct a review of the impartiality of the audit, certification and related decision-making processes of the Institute.

The following additional tasks have been assigned to the Certification Management Committee, provided these additional tasks or duties do not compromise its essential role of ensuring impartiality:
  • Managing the Institute’s certification activities
  • Maintaining records and recommending budgets for certification activities
  • Liaising with test centres and training bodies
  • Recommending certification fees and levies
  • Liaising with appropriate national and international bodies on certification matters
  • Maintaining relevant accreditation for the Institute’s certification activities
  • Liaising with external accreditation bodies
  • Auditing of test centres
  • Maintaining an effective quality management system and compliance with essential requirements for certification bodies
  • Proposing and managing certification initiatives
  • Establishing sub-groups where appropriate.
