Annotated Policies and Procedures
The 17024 Compliance Handbook contains comprehensive draft Certification Policies and Procedures, a sample Candidate Handbook, and a sample Employee Handbook.
These documents are annotated with callouts that show which Section of 17024 the specific text is designed to comply with.
Drafts of legal agreements are included where necessary.
NOTE: The legal agreements in the Handbook are not ready for execution! They are only provided as initial points for your lawyer to draw up an agreement appropriate to your certifciation body. These documents are not legal advice, and are provided as placeholders to show specifically what you will need to have constructed by competent counsel.
The Handbook contains many checklists for frequently repeated tasks.
The Handbook has templates for major issues addressed by a certification program. For example, there’s a sample Certificate which meets the requirements for 17024.
The Handbook contains many sample documents which illustrate how to implement a specific policy.

There’s also a template notification letter for candidates that fail.
The text is sprinkled with numerous templates for letters and notifications which must be written to enforce compliance with the conditions of certification.
