Why PMC Specifically

In a globally competitive climate, the business world is constantly changing - alongside the expectations of organisations of what a hired consultant should bring to the table.

SBACC certified PMCs go through a rigorous and stringent assessment process which ensures that they meet multiple qualifying criteria including educational and professional qualifications, relevant work experiences, clients’ testimonials and even integrity checks.

When hiring SBACC certified consultants, an organisation can be confident that the consultant is bound by the PMC Code of Professional Conduct.

This is to validate the integrity and professionalism of the PMCs which in turn gives organisations a peace of mind when engaging PMCs.


Given the stringent structure of the PMC Certification Scheme, companies are assured of:

  • Improved accountability:
    With the certification being tied to the individual consultant instead of the consultancy firm as well as compliance to the professional standards of conduct and code of ethics by the PMC, there is improved accountability.
  • Adherence to international standards:
    SBACC has attained the ISO/IEC 17024 accreditation, affirming that international standards and best practices in the certification of individuals are adhered to.
  • Official Endorsement:
    There are official endorsements by government agencies such as SPRING Singapore, WDA and IPOS. The Certification Board also works closely with other government agencies and associations.
  • Independent administration:
    The PMC Certification Board which functions independently from all other organisations and government agencies makes the final decision on every application for certification.
