RIMS-CRMP Certification Earns International Accreditation 12/7/2017

 

​Accreditation Confirms RIMS Certification As The Global Standard
 
NEW YORK (December 7, 2017) — Now the only risk management certification in the world to hold accredited status, the RIMS-Certified Risk Management Professional certification (RIMS-CRMP) received official accreditation by the American National Standards Institute (ANSI) under ISO/IEC 17024:2012. The ANSI Accreditation of RIMS-CRMP signifies that the Institute recognizes the competence of RIMS to carry out certification activities in accordance with requirements defined in International Standards and confirms approval by government and peer review assessments.
 
With the accreditation of the RIMS-CRMP under ISO/IEC 17024:2012:
•    RIMS is the only risk management certification to currently have earned such status;
•    RIMS-CRMP conforms to international standards;
•    RIMS is one of the youngest programs to earn accreditation in any industry;
•    An independent third-party has evaluated and approved the certification program, its processes and procedures;
•    RIMS commitment to continuous quality reviews and improvements is solidified.
 
“Achieving accreditation status for RIMS-CRMP reaffirms the Society’s commitment to excellence and delivering powerful programs for the global risk community,” said RIMS CEO Mary Roth. “As an internationally recognized mark of achievement, the certification demonstrates professionals’ dedication to their work and validates their risk management knowledge and skills.”
 
RIMS Director of Certification Programs Veronica Whitehead said, “Compliance to an ISO standard is a prestigious accomplishment in the United States and carries even greater prestige around the world where it might be required to do business. No matter the country, the accreditation of RIMS-CRMP certification cements it as the ultimate measure of risk management competency and reinforces the incredible value of becoming a RIMS-CRMP holder.”
 
ISO is an independent, non-governmental membership organization and the world’s largest developer of voluntary International Standards.  ISO is comprised of 162 member countries who are the national standards bodies around the world.  The United States representative to ISO is the American National Standards Institute (ANSI).
