Quality Control Materials (QCM) Review & Examination

To confirm the technical accuracy and quality control of our materials, Wolters Kluwer voluntarily submits to a QCM Review or QCM Examination of our publishing system and our publications. A QCM Review or Examination is essentially a peer review of quality control materials.

Our publications are reviewed every step of the way—from concept development to production—to ensure that we bring you the finest guides and workpapers on the market. In addition to the QCM Review or QCM Examination, our publications are updated annually and undergo strict technical and content reviews by qualified practitioners. This ensures that our products and practice aids are compliant with the most current standards and have “real-world” applicability.

Below are the most current QCM reports for each title enrolled in the program.
