ISO 17024 – Accreditation for Personnel Certification Bodies

Oxebridge is proud to announce its implementation and training on ANSI/ISO/IEC 17024, General Requirements for Bodies Operating Certification Systems of Persons.

Note: we are not an accreditation body, but rather we provide implementation training for personnel certification bodies seeking accreditation to this standard.

If your organization provides professional certification of personnel, then ISO 17024 accreditation by ANSI is the means to achieve international recognition of that certification. Oxebridge assists your organization in implementing the requirements of ISO 17024 in anticipation of third party accreditation by the American National Standards Institute (ANSI).

There is no limitation on the type of certification provided, so long as it results in a personal certification; organizational certifications are not applicable for this standard. If you decide that the certification requires US or international recognition, ISO 17024 accreditation applies. Types of personnel certifications include:

  • Certified Information Assurance / Security personnel
  • Certified Information Technology personnel
  • Certified manufacturing technology  personnel (any industry)
  • Certified therapeutic  personnel  (hypnotherapy, massage, counseling, etc.)
  • Certified safety personnel
  • Certified inspector personnel
  • Certified program / project management  personnel

We also help you navigate ANSI’s application procedures.
