This document is intended to show the outline for a certification scheme whereby organisations can have their operational processes for their purchasing management activities assessed against agreed criteria and be certified as conforming to those criteria by a competent impartial body.

As part of the scheme the assessment criteria must be recognised and accepted as appropriate by all relevant parties, nationally or internationally, and the certification bodies must demonstrate their competence to carry out the assessment and certifying activities through accreditation to international standards by independent authoritative national accreditation organisations.
