ISO 20700 Self-Declaration Checklist Training for CMCs

The CMC-Global ISO 20700:2017 Self-Declaration Checklist provides a value-added service offering for management consultants who will be authorised and recognised as able to self-declare their projects with their clients that their processes conform to the new International Standard ISO 20700, by an independently recognised authority.

This course is only available to IMC Australia and IMC New Zealand Certified Management Consultants (CMCs).


ISO 20700:2017 Guidelines for Management Consultancy has been developed to improve transparency and understanding between management consultancy service providers and their clients, ultimately leading to better outcomes from consultancy work. ISO 20700 was developed by management consultants for management consultants with CMC-Global (ICMCI) as the self-regulatory body of the management consulting profession, taking the lead in initiating the production of the Standard.

CMC-Global has now developed a Self-Declaration Checklist to the Standard to provide practical and hands on support for management consultants in demonstrating their work according to the ISO 20700 and has accredited IMC Australia to deliver this training to all management consultants practising within Australia.


This is a specially tailored course for members of IMC Australia and IMC New Zealand who are CMCs.

“I found the ISO 20700 training both informative and professionally rewarding. The workshop sessions enabled me to gain an understanding of the content of the Standard and how I might profitably apply the checklist to my management consulting practice. In summary, it was time well spent.”
