Oct. 18, 2007: IAQ Council Announces ISO Compliance

GLENDALE, Ariz. - The American Indoor Air Quality Council has announced that its certifications are compliant with international standards for program operation developed by the International Organization for Standardization.

ISO standards 9000, 9001, 9004, 17000, and 17024 apply to organizations conducting personnel certification programs. The IAQ Council stated that it is the first certifying body in the IAQ industry to comply with these standards.

“The IAQ Council is dedicated to providing the most credible certifications in indoor air quality,” said Charlie Wiles, IAQ Council executive director. “This announcement signals another important step in maintaining our credibility.”

ISO-compliant certifying bodies must meet rigorous standards for program operation and maintenance, including independence from certification-related training, exclusion of trainers from participation in certification decisions, and documented procedures for safeguarding impartiality and confidentiality.

The American Indoor Air Quality Council is a nonprofit certifying body founded in 1993 to serve the IAQ industry. The IAQ Council operates independent, third-party accredited certification programs for indoor environmental consultants, microbial consultants, microbial remediators, indoor air quality administrators, and residential mold inspectors.
