  • Include 'sector and trade association' in the list
  • Discussion of 'value added' by the existence of IAWG
    • the IAWG adds value by keeping the IAF current and responsive to the marketplace requirements - ensures that the certifications are usable and meaningful for inter-party transaction

    • It is really the current "value statement" but in the IAWG terms and context
