"Certifications" for Organizations

Although the terms "certification," "accreditation," and "compliant" are often heard in conjunction with CMMI, no organizations are "certified" in CMMI. The CMMI Institute does not certify the results of any company's appraisal or grant accreditation, nor do we accept legal responsibility for the performance of appraised companies. Rather, organizations are appraised by a CMMI Institute-certified lead appraiser, so the correct terminology is “appraised at” or “rated at.” The distinction may seem minor, but it is important to understand that CMMI is not an element of a certification (like ISO 9000, for example). For more about this issue, review the list of frequently asked questions and look for “How does my organization get CMMI certified?

Appraisal results have a maximum period of validity, which depends on the type of appraisal. Please visit this page, scroll to the bottom, and click "Show All" to compare each type of appraisal and see the validity period for each.

A current list of companies who have completed appraisals against the CMMI model, and provided us with written authorization for this release of information, is available on our website, and can be filtered by country. Clicking on any company listing will provide more detailed information regarding the appraisal. Appraisal results that are past their maximum period of validity are removed from this listing.
