When independent confirmations are needed

There is a growing community of pipeline risk management practitioners with expertise in assessing risk using the modern and robust methods described here.  This community is developing a concise list of ‘ingredients’ that are essential to proper risk assessment.  Such a list, used by a knowledgeable evaluator, provides a means to certify risk assessment processes.  A certification helps to ensure that beginning practitioners or anyone seeking an independent evaluation of any aspect of pipeline risk assessment/management, can acquire a confirmation, via a standardized process, that the aspect is appropriate for its intended application.
