The Institute of Hazardous Materials Management (IHMM) is committed to impartiality and objectivity in every aspect of our operation and understands the importance of carrying out all of its certification activities. We have intentionally structured ourselves to segregate responsibilities in our organization to facilitate this impartiality and objectivity.

IHMM’s processes and procedures are governed by its Bylaws, Management Systems Manual and Code of Ethics. IHMM understands the threat to impartiality that include, but are not limited to, self-interest, activities from related bodies, and relationships of personnel, financial interests, conflict of interest, familiarity, and intimidation.

IHMM adheres to principles of impartiality in all its dealings. All applications, candidates and certified persons are subject to the same consistent criteria, all policies and procedures are consistently followed and compliance with procedures is audited annually. Impartiality is a consideration across all aspects of IHMM’s certification program and its personnel.

We welcome any suggestions on how we can improve our implementation of certification activities.
