ISA supports governmental agencies, such as state or provincial Boards of Examiners, as the appropriate determiners of qualifications for licensure of engineers, technicians, and others for practice in the field of measurement and control. ISA will work with the appropriate boards to assist in establishing qualification criteria and, to the extent practical, to provide publicity for such programs.
 
ISA has determined that it is in the public interest to identify those practitioners who have developed expertise in specialty areas by certifying those individuals in accordance with criteria established by ISA’s certification committees, including written examinations. By certifying such practitioners, ISA aids the public by providing information regarding the credentials of those who may be engaged to provide such services.
