Usage Guidance

  • A certification must be from a third party, be standards-based, have those standards be transparent, and have an assurance process. The process of certification is carried out by a recognized body, independent from interested parties, which demonstrates that a product or organization complies with the requirements defined in the standards or technical specifications.
  • This metric may be reported in conjunction with Operational Certifications (OI1120) held by the organization.
