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 to be ISO 20700 compliant 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 just wanted to thank you for the training session on Tuesday. I found it interesting and enjoyable and enjoyed working with my colleagues in the small group breakouts.  Further, it gave me cause to revisit my consulting process and I have just finished updating my standard client engagement letter, terms and conditions and reference to the IMC Code of Ethics to ensure it is fully compliant with the requirements of the ISO 20700 Self-Declaration Checklist – Small Project.
It was a great investment of time. I have tonight, recommended it to the VicTas Chapter Council.”
