Each of those subcommittees is composed of TVIB auditors, surveyors and Supporting Organization members who volunteer their time and expertise to continue the development of our training curriculum, accreditation standards, and other necessary tools for performing audits and surveys so that we’re always in step with regulatory requirements, best practices and the latest advances in the industry.
