What are the necessary steps to achieve ASTM certification?

Written by 

First purchase the standard through the CIC website register your project with the Green Meeting Industry Council. Second, obtain a submission form from iCompli to gain a better understanding of what documentation is required to meet the criteria for your sector. Once you have the submission form, conduct a gap analysis of your current operation. After you have a better understanding of how your practices stack up to the criteria, you can develop a plan to address these opportunities for improvement. Finally once all criteria are met, pull together the documentation needed to demonstrate adherence and submit it for review by the iCompli auditors. Last but not least, share your story and success with the industry.
