ABC Linking Policy

About ABC

Linking to the Association of Boards of Certification website

As a resource for environmental certification information, ABC encourages members and related organizations to link to our site. Links must not suggest ABC endorsement or sponsorship of information, services, or products. It should be made clear that any link to ABC is an outside link and that all pages, information, and resources belong to ABC. We reserve the right to request link removal without explanation should the Communications Committee observe inappropriate use of a link to ABC’s site. ABC may revise, without notice, this linking policy.

Linking to Third Party Websites

ABC includes links to certification program websites in the Certification Contacts section of our website.
ABC strives to maintain accurate contact information, but changes can be frequent and we cannot
guarantee the availability of any listed website.

Requests for Link Inclusion

ABC’s website “Links” section includes industry related websites for your reference. ABC does not
endorse services or products on linked sites, and is not responsible for the content, views expressed, or
sponsorships of third party sites.


Organizations may request in writing for ABC to include their website in our “Links” section. Requests
will be considered and approved by the Communications Committee based on the following criteria:

  • Website represents an organization in one of the following industries: water, wastewater,
    certification, or environmental protection.
  • The site is owned by a not-for-profit, government, or other non-commercial organization.
    Generally, ABC will not link to individual utilities’ websites, unless specific pages contain information
    pertinent to ABC members.

ABC will consider linkages to for-profit, commercial sites that also offer resource information valuable to
those in the certification profession. ABC reserves the right to refuse including a site that does not meet the criteria listed above. Inquiries on ABC’s web linking policy should be directed to¬† abccommunications@abccert.org.
