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.
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 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.
