IAS Seeks Members to Serve on Accreditation Committee
The International Accreditation Service (IAS) seeks interested individuals to serve on its Accreditation Committee.
IAS provides objective evidence that an organization operates at the highest level of ethical, legal and technical standards. As subsidiary of the International Code Council (ICC), it has been providing accreditation services since 1975.
IAS accredits a wide range of companies and organizations, including governmental entities, commercial businesses and professional associations. IAS accreditation programs are based on recognized national and international standards that ensure domestic and/or global acceptance of its accreditations.
Qualified individuals must be willing to participate in the oversight of IAS accreditation programs and contribute in the development of accreditation criteria. Members of the Accreditation Committee are expected to participate in a minimum of one in-person meeting annually, with occasional conference calls as needed, and to provide high-level guidance to the leadership of IAS.
Applicants should display a reasonable familiarity with conformity assessment and accreditation processes. While applicants with a background other than code compliance are encouraged to apply, familiarity with the principles of code enforcement is helpful.
Regular appointments to the Committee are for a one-year term. Appointments may be for different terms to facilitate Committee continuity and transition. Appointments to the Committee are approved by the IAS Board of Directors. Terms for the current call will begin approximately April 1, 2017.
Current members of the IAS Accreditation Committee interested in continued service on the Committee are requested to submit an application.
Individuals interested in being considered for the IAS Accreditation Committee, including current IAS Accreditation Committee members, must submit an application. Applications will be accepted until 4:00 p.m., Pacific Time, January 31, 2017.
