Objectives:
The objective of the working group is to set up a scheme which provides accepted assessment results that provide a decent level of trustworthiness. If the requirements of this scheme are fulfilled a certificate can be issued. Within the scope are assessments according to IOS/IEC 15504-2 complaint PAMs for either project assessments or organizational maturity (see ISO/IEC TR 15504-7)
Background:
The   technical report of ISO/IEC 15504 Part 7 provides a framework for assessments of organisational maturity based on ISO/IEC 15504. Organisational Maturity appraisals based on CMMI / SCAMPI have already been performed for many years.
Current situation: it is hard to judge whether assessments and appraisals performed by third parties (i.e., consultancies, freelancers) reveal a necessary level of detail, rigor, and ISO/IEC 15504-2 conformance. This is especially true for Organizational Maturity assessments, for some regions in the world in particular.

In order to make such undertakings more professional and to provide clear requirements for trustworthy assessment results of ISO/IEC 15504 compliant assessments intacs has set up a working party in 2009 in response to industry feedback and requests.
The approach is as follows: offering assessment certificates once it is assured that that assessment performance was according to high quality standards and done by certified professionals, and, further,  that the assessment results were put under independent quality assurance.
Purpose
  1. Definie and maintain exam questions for Provisional and Competent courses in cooperation with Working Party "Standard Course Materials", the instructors, and based on exam participant feedback
  2. Compile exams and deliver exam releases to Certification Bodies.
  3. Approve an release exam results created by Certification Bodies before announcing them to the participants
  4. Quality assurance and configuration management
Deliverables
  1. Exam questions for Provisional and Competent courses
  2. Exam results approvals
