The Federation of the Supply Chain Management Association (SCMA and its provincial partner Associations) is committed to protecting the integrity of the CSCMP designation and ensuring that only those who have achieved and then maintain their designation in good standing have the ability to call themselves a Certified SCMP. As part of this mandate requested by members, CSCMP Designation holders whose membership with the Association lapses, or who do not fulfill their CPD Maintenance requirements in the prescribed time period, will face penalties when trying to re-establish their designation in good standing. The charts below explain the penalties and timeframes in which they occur.
