NEBB announced that its Commissioning Process Professional (CxPP) certification has earned accreditation from the American National Standards Institute Personnel Certification Accreditation Program.

The National Environment Balance Bureau's CxPP certification is an individual certification, and those certified as a Commissioning Process Professional (CxPP) lead, plan, coordinate, and manage a commissioning team to implement commissioning processes in new and existing buildings. According to NEBB, CxPP certificants have met a stringent combination of education and experience requirements and demonstrate their knowledge of process commissioning by passing the CxPP examination.

"ANSI commends NEBB for achieving accreditation and demonstrating its commitment to the continual improvement of its certification program," said Dr. Vijay Krishna, senior director of credentialing programs at ANSI. "Accreditation by ANSI demonstrates compliance to a rigorous internationally recognized accreditation process and creates a valuable market distinction for these credentials."

This ANSI accreditation process — based on the ANSI/ISO/IEC 17024:2012 standard — is designed to increase the integrity, confidence, and mobility of certified professionals. Since the launch of ANSI's Personnel Certification Accreditation Program in 2003, the Institute has accredited 60 personnel certification bodies for 185 certification programs across a range of industry sectors involving more than 5 million people.

"Having been on NEBB's board of directors since the project's inception, I have seen the entire process unfold firsthand. It is a fantastic achievement for NEBB to be recognized as an ANSI accredited certifying body.  The CxPP certification provides NEBB certificants with another tool to better serve their customer base," said Jim Kelleher, NEBB president. "We are extremely proud of the diligent efforts from our certification board and certification staff that made the CxPP ANSI accreditation a reality."
