CMMC professional certification regimes, like those for individual Assessors and Instructiosn, will conform to ISO/IEC Standard 17024 for organizations operating certification of individuals.

The requirements in this standard are general requirements for bodies providing certification and highlight that certification of individuals can only occur when there is a certification scheme. The certification scheme is designed to supplement the requirements included in the standard and include those requirements that the market needs or that are required by respective governments.
