Batch Verification Policy and Procedure

The purpose of bulk verification is to determine the exam result status of a group of individuals based on a predetermined set of criteria. (ISC)² is committed to being consistent, fair and impartial, and most importantly make decisions based on (ISC)² policies and guidelines, when handling these requests.
