Individuals certified by CCHI must abide by the full policy available below. Failure to comply with these policies may result in disciplinary action and/or revocation of certification. The purpose of this Quick Reference is to get you going in the right direction, quick. When used, the marks must be displayed in certain manners so as to avoid a potential loss of rights.
