The Federal Minister for Education and Professional Training Shafqat Mahmood on Friday congratulated the Inter-Board Committee of Chairmen (IBCC) for becoming an ISO-certified organisation.

In a tweet, the minister appreciated the secretary of IBCC as well as his team for the big achievement.

IBCC has become an internationally recognised body issuing educational certificates, said a statement issued by the committee.

IBCC certificates for up to senior secondary level, or matriculation, will be recognised globally after acquiring ISO 9001:2015 certification for quality management standard developed and published by the International Organisation for Standardisation (ISO).

After the ISO certifications, the standards of IBCC are now internationally recognised, said a statement issued by the committee. The authentication of educational documents awarded by the recognised examining bodies and equivalence of foreign qualification up-to higher secondary level issued by the IBCC will be globally acknowledged without any hesitation.

The procedures adopted and services provided by IBCC shall have the international standards and acceptance of credibility in all aspects. The committee acknowledged the efforts of the Minister for Federal Education and Professional Training Shafqat Mahmood and the secretaries of IBCC, and the federal education ministry.

The IBCC has been certified for its "determination of equivalence of qualification, attestation of documents, and verification of certificates.

"According to the IBCC website, the committee stands to "achieve a fair measure of uniformity of academic evaluation and curricular standards and to promote curricular and extra-curricular activities on Inter Board basis."
