ISCCAB was founded recently out of a need for an organization outside the U.S. Government, to look out for consumers.
Previously all licensing and certifications were done only for industries that had the potential to negatively affect human health or the environment.
Thus government organizations such as the Environmental Protection Agency, EPA, certify businesses for lead paint abatement, because failure to take proper care results in damage to human health and the environment. Another Government Agency, The Department of Regulatory Agencies State Plumbing Board, requires plumbers to be licensed to ensure safety and adherence to local rules and regulations. Electricians are governed by the National Electrical Code and need to be licensed, they must prove their experience and knowledge to help minimize the risk of electrical shock and faulty wiring hazards.
But what about all of the other industries, where human health and the environment are not factors, but you still want to know industry by industry, who is worth their salt, who won't cause damage to your property, and where can you find customer satisfaction across industries when tens of thousands of dollars are trading hands. That's where ISCCAB steps up.
ISCCAB, Industry Standards Certification and Corrective Action Board works with 5 major industries. They are:
Within each industry, we PROTECT, CORRECT, and PROMOTE, representing interest of both customers and businesses. Businesses and agents need references vetted. To be considered for certification, businesses must maintain a 4.5 or higher Google Review score. Once references have been vetted, knowledge is tested and ethics are scored as part of the ISCCAB certification process. ISCCAB encourages clients to provide feedback from their certified business entity they have worked with. If a negative report surfaces, completed corrective action and remediation will be required prior to a re-certification evaluation by the Advisory Board.
Furthermore, within each industry is an Advisory Board. They are the certification gatekeepers. Industry Advisory Board members are invited based on their reputation, expertise and length of time in their industry. They are not paid for their participation in the certification process or corrective actions taken against businesses to maintain the integrity of the ISCCAB certified entities database.
