About ACG: Established in 2005, the AABC Commissioning Group (ACG) is a non-profit association of commissioning companies whose fundamental principles include independence, certification, and training and education. Companies that meet the requirements are joined by a community of professionals dedicated to providing the best service while advocating the independence of firms providing commissioning services.

How Do I Join?: The applying company must qualify as an independent commissioning firm. To qualify as independent, a commissioning company must have no affiliation with manufacturers of equipment or system components, general or installing contractors, or any other person or company which could affect the ability of the member to render an independent commissioning report. The applying company agrees to perform work in accordance with the ACG Commissioning Guideline, and to abide by the bylaws of the organization. Learn more here or contact [email protected].
