Exemplar Global Laureate’s vision is to partner with like-minded bodies, associations, governmental institutions, and industries that wish to advance the tools and concepts for determining and recognizing competence.

Current community initiatives include:



IAAR members’ clients represent nearly all service and industry sectors and all sizes of clients from a handful of employees to multinational corporations. These clients benefit from accredited registration/systems certification to quality, environmental, and health and safety management system standards such as ISO 9001, ISO 14001, AS9100, TL 9000, ISO 13485, and many others.

A major initiative relates to joint activity on auditor career development and analysis. Exemplar Global has been contributing to the understanding of auditor career paths and professional development models to help ensure the growth and sustainability of the management system auditing community.

As a member of IAAR, we present updates in the field of personnel competence and certification as well as providing technical guidance and thought leadership to a number of IAAR working groups.
