The ASCM Enterprise Handbook for Organizations provides organizations interested in learning more about the ASCM Enterprise Certification with pertinent information about the program. Throughout all steps and phases of the Enterprise Certification journey, The ASCM Enterprise Handbook is your comprehensive resource.
All organizations pursuing ASCM Enterprise certification follow a similar path*. One approach to obtaining the Enterprise Certification is detailed below.
Once you have concluded your preparation, you must complete and pay for your ASCM Enterprise Certification registration to begin the evaluation process.
ASCM staff will then review your submitted information, assign your evaluator, and identify the sites to be evaluated. Your evaluator will work with you to conduct the onsite evaluation(s).
Upon completion of the evaluation(s), the Enterprise Committee will review the documentation and notes submitted. Once approved, the certificaiton will be valid for three (3) years.
In Year 2 and Year 3 of each certification cycle, certified organizations are required to submit an annual maintenance application verifying that operations are still compliant with the standards.
After three years, certified organizations are required to recertify by submitting a new registration application, completing new evaluations, and seeking continued committee approval.
