The DMC reports directly to the IAF Board of Directors and it is the key oversight and management body for IAF CertSearch and monitoring the contractual arrangements with QualityTrade. It maintains a project plan for the development of the new business model. The DMC is representative of IAF Membership, but it intends to increase the number of AB representatives to ensure there is one representative from each Regional Accreditation Group. The DMC meets bi-weekly to review progress against the project plan. The IAF Chair and Vice chair meet regularly with QualityTrade to monitor progress.
