Advisory institutions where attending CECRA candidates come into contact with advisory clients are particularly suitable. For purposes of preparation, guidelines are available for the visited body/ advisory organization as well as for the researching of the body by the CECRA candidate. The form for confirmation of the research visit to the body can be used as proof of the research visit when submitting the application for certification.
