For peer verified and innovative projects, the project verification process uses educational institutions to act as verifiers, instead of using ISO accredited verifiers. By using educational institutions, not only does the project implementer avoid extensive costs, the verifier institution can bolster its academic mission and offer the verification process as a learning opportunity for students. Towards this objective, faculty or staff advise students who would accomplish the verification, following the guidance documents for verification. The format of this arrangement works best as an independent study, group class project, master's project, or capstone experience.
Current Peer Verifiers
The current peer verifiers are organizations at educational institutions all over the US.
