The Standards Council has been in pilot mode with some specially invited partners for the last year, to help us test the systems with live data, and to help us iron out any wrinkles. We are pleased to announce that the pilot program concluded on 16 November, when the Melbourne launch took place. You are welcome to apply for accreditation any time now that the pilot program has concluded.

We are pleased to announce that our Pilot Program will be coming to an end in the next couple of months and that as a result we will be ready to throw open the doors to any Christian organisation which wishes to seek accreditation against the CMA Standards Council Principles and Standards of Responsible Governance from that time.
