ASCI Professionalisation Committee Charter

This Professional Committees Charter articulates the means by which the Professionalisation Committees will support the delivery of the ASCI Professionalisation Strategy. It is a founding document that helps the committees deliver and uphold effective governance, defines the roles and responsibilities, as well as the mission, composition, responsibilities, and standard protocols of the Professionalisation Committees.


The ASCI Professionalisation Committees are established to manage and give execution to the three key professionalisation components of the Supply Chain Management Professional Accreditation Scheme. It shall assist the ASCI Board and management to stay abreast of matters of concern to the committee, in supply chain management and supply chain development, to ensure that ASCI makes well-informed choices by referring relevant matters to one of the three committees for review and consideration; maintaining a professional approach to Supply Chain Management in the industry.


The purpose of the Professionalisation Committees is to advise the ASCI Board on all matters involving these committees, such as ethical issues presented by the Ethics Committee, risk issues presented by the Industry Risk Committee, etc including interaction, where appropriate, with other relevant organisations.

In accordance with the directive of the ASCI Board of Directors, the ASCI Professionalisation Committees serve as advisory bodies to the Board of Directors to assess and interpret supply chain management matters within the domain of these committees and to advise regarding the potential action relevant to the advice. These opinions represent the Committee’s advice to ASCI Board, members and interested persons, and, to the registered professional and practitioner members.

The ASCI Professionalisation Committees:

  • oversee their respective areas of responsibility;

  • create and maintain the applicable procedures and advisory structures;

  • review requests for advisory opinions; and

  • review submissions to the committee and where required, provide recommendations to the Board.
