In addition to ANSI and NCCA accrediting the CIH program, ABIH is a recognized certification board by the International Occupational Hygiene Association (IOHA).

Accreditation of a certification program is the process by which an entity recognizes a program as conforming to a standard.  It is essential for developing a certification that is recognized by government agencies and industry and provides true value for the certification holder.
 
ABIH, as the certifying board for the CIH program, is dedicated to maintaining uncompromised integrity, global recognition and career-lasting value for its Diplomates.  Accreditation of ABIH’s certification program itself has long been an integral part of achieving these goals.

“In addition to ANSI and NCCA accrediting the CIH program, ABIH is a recognized certification board by the International Occupational Hygiene Association (IOHA),” said Tracy Parsons, CIH, Administrative Program Manager at ABIH.   “IOHA is an association of organizations from across the world, all of which are dedicated to the discipline and application of the inherent principles of occupational hygiene. ABIH’s certification scheme has been recognized by IOHA since 2003.”
 
The demanding standards of the CIH program means that only an elite group of professionals has this designation, making it the premier standard within the industrial hygiene community for more than 50 years.
