IHMM Wins Continued ANSI/ANAB Accreditation for the CHMM, CHMP, and CDGP scopes under ISO/IEC 17024:2012
The Institute of Hazardous Materials Management [IHMM] is pleased to announce that ANAB/ANSI National Accreditation Board has awarded accreditation to IHMM’s Certified Hazardous Materials ManagerⓇ[CHMMⓇ], Certified Hazardous Materials PractitionerⓇ[CHMPⓇ], and Certified Dangerous Good ProfessionalⓇ [CDGPⓇ] credentials.
ANAB accreditation programs are driven by national and international recognitions as well as industry and scheme recognitions. ANAB participates in international and regional arrangements for multilateral recognition aimed at facilitating global market opportunities by building worldwide reliability of conformity assessment activities, thus saving time and money for ANAB clients. Federal, state, and local authorities rely on ANAB accreditation to demonstrate value and assure competency for important public priorities. Many conformity assessment scheme owners rely on ANAB accreditation to foster consumer confidence. ISO/IEC 17024:2012 contains principles and requirements for a body certifying persons against specific requirements and includes the development and maintenance of a certification scheme for persons.
Winning continued ANAB/ANSI accreditation marks IHMM’s continued adherence to excellence in bringing credentials of extraordinary strength and quality to the general public, government, and our existing holders of those credentials.

IHMM is pleased to announce the launch of the Student Associate Safety and Health Manager [ST/ASHM] credential. Modeled after the highly successful Student CHMM program, the Student ASHM credential reaches into colleges and universities to students studying disciplines that could eventually lead to the ASHM and then the CSHM credentials.
IHMM’s Student Associate Safety & Health Manager (ST/ASHM ®) credential recognizes students who wish to demonstrate their development of knowledge and skills in safety and health management in the workplace while pursuing their undergraduate or graduate degree.
There are 1.5 million Bachelor’s degrees awarded by universities and colleges every year. The average student spends thousands of dollars to achieve something that 1.5 million other students also have. While undeniably valuable, you need more than a Bachelor’s degree to clearly distinguish yourself from everyone else in a highly competitive job market. That’s where professional certification becomes so valuable to you. With IHMM and the Student ASHM credential, you enter a path to being in the top 1% of your professional community.

Certificants are reminded that you cast start your recertification application at any time. You do not have to wait to the end of your 5-year recertification cycle to start a recertification application. Simply log on to your “My IHMM” Account, choose the Menu on the left hand side of the page and then choose “Apply for Recertification.” You can start your application and document your Professional Development activities as they are accrued. Your application will be maintained as “Pending” until you complete it within one year prior to the end of your 5 year recertification cycle. Remember to maintain documentation of all professional activities claimed in the application, in the event your application is audited any time during your recertification cycle.
Remember to keep your personal contact information, including your name, address, telephone number and e-mail address current, so that the Institute can communicate with you. Also recall, that an invoice will be placed in your account three months ahead of when your annual fees are due. The fees associated with your recertification are spread out and invoiced annually over your 5-year recertification cycle, to even out the cash flow to the Institute.
Certificants have additional options such as, “Inactive Status,” Reinstatement and “Emeritus Status”. Additional information is available on the IHMM website.
