DQS Certification India Private Limited provides CMMI Assessment Services and does not provide CMMI Consulting. CMMI Assessment is purely an Assessment activity and there is no consulting activity in this assessment. CMMI assessment is carried out according to the SCAMPI Method Definition Document (SCAMPI MDD). The CMMI Consulting services are provided by a separate legal entity (DQSITC) in order to have full compliance to ISO 17021 and SEI Conflict of Interest Policy. The separate legal entity (DQSITC) does not provide CMMI Assessment Services and will only provide CMMI Consulting Services.
CMMI Consultants from DQSITC are not allowed to carry out CMMI Assessment or ISO 9001 or similar assessments which are controlled by ISO 17021 and SEI Conflict of Interest Policy. On the other hand, DQS Certification India’s CMMI Assessors and Management System Auditors (like for ISO 9001, 14001) are not allowed to carry out CMMI Consulting.
The above – mentioned policies are established and documented in DQS Certification Quality Management System and implemented and maintained through respective procedures.
