The JICMAIL Accreditation Policy is designed to ensure that all users gain the maximum benefits from this data. All organisations are Accredited to JICMAIL and maintain that status through adherence to an Adoption Plan. Over and above this is Platinum status which is open for submissions twice a year and is only awarded to those organisations who are exemplary in their use, application and advocacy of JICMAIL data.
Our current list of Platinum Partners is here.
Hear from our Platinum Partners about the benefits of embedding JICMAIL in their businesses:
Platinum Organisational Accreditation is awarded to businesses who have demonstrated a level of proficiency with JICMAIL beyond its basic application which includes evidence of JICMAIL data being embedded into the advertiser, intermediary or agency L&D programs; evidence of JICMAIL data being embedded into the planning and/or reporting data ecosystem; and evidence that JICMAIL is being systematically used to retain or grow business. It requires evidence of the organisation adhering to industry best practice standards with respect to the levy, such as specifying the specific levy cost on plans/proposals or detailing the levy as a VAT exempt item on invoices with best practice process a key criteria.
For agencies, intermediaries and sell-side organisations to be awarded platinum accreditation, they will be required to achieve a specific set of tasks as agreed in their adoption plans. For advertisers Platinum accreditation will be awarded on a discretionary basis as per the decision of the JICMAIL accreditation panel. This will be reviewed on an advertiser-by-advertiser basis once per year.
Platinum Partner status is maintained through a refresh of the original requirements and additional information supplied to show adherence to the core principles.
The deadline for entries for this year's Platinum Awards is Friday 29th September 2023 for award in October 2023.
