Guberman-PMC Celebrates 6 Successful Years In Business Despite Ongoing Attacks From IAF/ANAB Propagandist

Businesses nationwide flocking to Guberman-PMC for ISO certification to avoid being part of China-lead IAF and its propaganda machine.

Stratford, CT (USA), August 19th, 2017 — Daryl Guberman, the CEO of Guberman-PMC, LLC a quality management consultation firm in Connecticut announced today the release of a new video to celebrate six successful years in business helping companies all over the country and worldwide achieve fully accredited ISO certification. The video can be viewed at https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zijkNh-mQi8

Since its founding, Guberman-PMC has been a subject of defamatory attacks for its refusal to be part of what has been dubbed as an anti-competitive accreditation scheme promoted by the ANSI-ASQ National Accreditation Board (ANAB) and its sister organization International Accreditation Forum (IAF). Both ANAB and IAF have been reported to the FTC for collusion, fraud, and antitrust violations, see http://www.einpresswire.com/article/384402696/iaac-anab-iaf-and-nist-probed-for-crony-capitalism-accreditation-fraud-and-antitrust-violations


Daryl Guberman, CEO, Guberman-PMC, LLC

Guberman said he declined the offer to be part of the ANAB and IAF accreditation scheme because his organization and other registration companies have been a target of personal attacks by ANAB/IAF supporters for deciding not to be part of its accreditation scheme.

“Guberman-PMC will not be intimated, nor will it allow itself to be overseen by China-led International Accreditation Forum (IAF).” He added, “Guberman-PMC prefers to work with registrars that see the value in competition and independence, such as those accredited by ABAC American Board of Accredited Certifications (http://www.aboac.org) which has proven to be a defender of fair competition, equal opportunity, and diversity in the ISO certification marketplace.”

Donald LaBelle, CEO of Manufacturing Partners, a trade association of custom manufacturers, machine shops, and industrial suppliers, said businesses should have the right to choose the certification and accreditation body of their choice, and not be forced into using organizations under the umbrella of the China influenced International Accreditation Forum (IAF). “Competition is what improves quality, not restraining competition, it’s about giving businesses a choice,” said LaBelle.

Guberman’s team investigated the leadership of ANAB and IAF and discovered the organization was knowingly providing speaking engagements for a Christopher Paris in Tampa, Florida known to be misleading businesses certified by ANAB competitors. The individual was caught in a telemarketing sting calling on Guberman’s customers and attempting to discredit the reputation of Guberman’s company despite G-PMC Group being federally recognized and fully accredited in good standing by the American Board Of Accredited Certifications (ABAC).

Guberman posted a video about the attacks on his company and family by ANAB/IAF propagandist Christopher Paris: http://dguberman.com/warning-about-oxebridge-quality-resources-and-its-owner-chris-paris/

Guberman said he confirmed Randy Doughtery, the current Chairman of IAAC Inter-American Accreditation Cooperation, and previously the Vice President of ANAB and Chairman of the International Accreditation Forum (IAF) allowed speaking engagements for Mr. Paris despite various complaints on copyright violations and business defamation from those in Dougherty’s  own organization as well as other businesses. Guberman later learned from a independent source believed to be working with TAG 176 that Paris may be getting subsidized for his defamation activities to harm the reputation of those in competition with ANAB/IAF.

Guberman, a potential candidate for U.S. Senate (http://www.darylguberman.com) said he has been in direct communication with President Trump’s administration as well as the Federal Trade Commission’s Bureau of Competition and a number of Congressmen and attorneys to push for an investigation on the organizations and individuals behind the accreditation scheme, specifically The ANSI-ASQ National Accreditation Board (ANAB) and its affiliated organization International Accreditation Forum (IAF).

ISO Extortion: Threats To Silence Guberman Backfire On Accreditation Oppressors

Guberman continues to expose an anti-American accreditation scheme despite threats to silence him.

Milwaukee, WI (USA), August 10th, 2017 — Daryl Guberman, the CEO of G-PMC Group, LLC, the leading independent ISO registrar accredited by the American Board of Accredited Certifications (ABAC) has a simple message to the individuals that is threatening him and his company for exposing an international accreditation scheme involving The ANSI-ASQ National Accreditation Board (ANAB), The National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST), and the International Accreditation Forum (IAF). “I won’t be silenced,” said Guberman.

Yesterday, Guberman published a video (https://youtu.be/Mkn11hw2gjs) in response to those that are desperately attempting to restrain him and his company from having the moral and legal right to certify American businesses for ISO certification. In the video, Guberman said he has received harrasing phone calls and threats from anonymous individuals he believes to be profiting from the accreditation racket.

“There are a number of individuals profiting significantly from the accreditation scheme that do not want me to tell the truth about having a choice.” Citing one of his favorite quotes Guberman said, “What the accreditation oppressors need to realize is the truth always rises to the top, just like oil.”

Guberman’s company G-PMC, LLC (http://www.g-pmc.com) specializes in providing complete and fully accredited ISO certification services for businesses that do not want to be certified by a registar belonging to the Chinese-led International Accreditation Forum (IAF) which is under the leadership of Chinese National Xiao Jianhua, according to public records at http://dguberman.com/IAF_tax_report.pdf

Studies show the majority of U.S. manufacturers certified to ISO 9001:2015, AS9100, ISO 13485, ISO/TS 16949, and other standards are unfortunately not aware their registrar belongs to Chinese-led International Accreditation Forum (IAF). In contrast, the only recognized US-based accreditation body that does not belong to Chinese influenced IAF is the American Board of Accredited Certifications (ABAC), which happens to be the fastest growing accreditation body in North America.

Guberman said those profiting from the accreditation scam and attempting to harm his business should realize their strong-arm tactics only motivate him and other businesses to push back and stand against the corruption.

“I’m bringing to light the biggest industrial scam this country has ever seen, so their threats to silence my message only motivates me further to inform and protect the American people, and the thousands of misled businesses that have been swindled by the accreditation hyperbole.” He concluded, “It’s appalling how this foreign influenced accreditation racket is hurting American businesses, killing American jobs, wasting tax dollars, and weakening the quality of American made products, and therefore, those behind the racket should be locked up for treason.”

Guberman’s Youtube channel has dozens of videos in which he talks about the accreditation scheme hoodwinking U.S. businesses by registrars belonging to ANAB-IAF at at http://bit.ly/2ugQBr1

U.S. Senate Candidate Daryl Guberman Ignites Call For The Defunding Of NIST In Visit To Capital Hill

The American Board of Accredited Certifications (ABAC) calls for lawmakers to immediately defund the National Institute of Standards Technology (NIST).

Washington, D.C. (USA), July 28th, 2017 — Daryl Guberman (http://www.darylguberman.com), candidate for U.S. Senate (I-CT) recently visited Capital Hill to call for federal authorities and lawmakers to investigate an accreditation scheme involving government-corporate collusion between the National Institute of Standards Technology (NIST), The ANSI-ASQ National Accreditation Board (ANAB) and affiliated organizations. Guberman’s Washington’s visit came weeks after the FTC received complaints of anti-competitive practices and collusion between NIST, ANAB and the International Accreditation Forum (IAF).

Guberman intended to meet with the Federal Trade Commission (FTC), Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI), Department of Commerce, and the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) to provide documentation with evidence of alleged collusion, violation of antitrust laws, and corporate fraud involving an anti-competitive accreditation scheme that is misleading U.S. businesses.

While in Washington, Guberman called for investigation of several individuals allegedly behind the scheme, including Randy Dougherty, the former Vice President of ANAB (http://aboac.org/accreditation-myths) and previous Chairman of IAF; Erik Puskar, the accreditation director for NIST and the Vice-Chair for ANSI Committee on Education (COE); Peter Unger, the Former President of American Association for Laboratory Accreditation (A2LA), Lonnie Spires present CEO of A2LA; and S. Joe Bhatia, President and CEO of the American National Standards Institute (ANSI).

Guberman said NIST, ANSI, ANAB and IAF are colluding to restrain competition by utilizing Government power and influence to promote an anti-competitive accreditation scheme operated primarily by privately owned ANAB and its sister operation IAF while both entities remained under the leadership of Mr. Dougherty. More details on the collusion can be found on Guberman’s company website at http://dguberman.com/the-story-of-corporations-and-consumers-being-hoodwinked-by-iso/

“As a measurement standards laboratory, and a non-regulatory agency of the United States Department of Commerce, NIST is abusing its power and influence by colluding with The ANSI-ASQ National Accreditation Board (ANAB), which is owned by the American National Standards Institute (ANSI) & The American Society of Quality (ASQ),” said Guberman. He added, “Under no circumstances should  our government be engaging in monopolistic conduct, condoning anti-competitive business practices, or conspiring with privately-owned entities to restrain competition.”

Guberman’s Washington trip was accompanied by Donald LaBelle, Chairman of ABAC – The American Board of Accredited Certifications (http://www.aboac.org), a leading independent accreditation body in the United States. LaBelle said businesses are being hoodwinked into an accreditation racket without an alternative choice because the government (NIST) is putting its nose where it does not belong. “The NIST-ANSI-ANAB accreditation scheme is crony capitalism in its most disturbing form, a well-oiled international money grab that is funneling millions of dollars from taxpayers into the greedy pockets of government perpetrators and their corporate accomplices behind the accreditation sham,” said LaBelle

Guberman has recently launched a series of videos on Youtube unmasking the NIST-ANSI-ANAB-IAF accreditation scheme and the department heads behind the racket. In one video, Guberman discusses the anti-competitive practices of NIST and its conspiracies in restraint of trade by setting discriminative requirements thereby forcing businesses to utilize ISO registrars over-seen by entities belonging to the ANSI-ANAB-IAF monopoly. The video can be found at https://youtu.be/nbUsU5qv7gw

IAF Accredited Certificate Mill Issued ISO 9001:2015 To Company That Did Not Exist

GMS, Renar and IAF caught in accreditation sting; certifies and accredits a phony company for ISO 9001:2015.

New York, NY (USA), June 10th, 2017 — G-PMC Group, one of the country’s leading quality management certification firms, with the assistance of the American Board of Accredited Certification (ABAC), the only independent accreditation body in the United States, released additional details on its sting operation involving a one year investigation on bogus accreditation bodies and certificate mills belonging to the International Accreditation Forum (IAF). The details and outcome of the investigation can be found on the G-PMC company website at http://www.g-pmc.com/abac-completes-sting-of-the-romanian-accreditation-association-renar-for-accrediting-bogus-companies

According to an ABAC spokesperson, the undercover operation focused on both domestic and foreign certification bodies propagandizing the influence of being recognized and/or so-called “overseen” by the International Accreditation Forum (IAF), which records show is led by Chinese national Xiao Jianhua, who serves as Chairman for the organization. Last month IAF came under scrutiny after ABAC and others called for the Federal Trade Commission to investigate the aerospace giant Lockheed Martin Corporation for alleged antitrust violations and potentially espionage with the Chinese-led IAF, as cited in the class action complaint. See http://www.einpresswire.com/article/374397638/abac-others-call-for-ftc-to-investigate-lockheed-martin-for-antitrust-violations

Henry Kroger, an adviser for ABAC’s oversight division said the sting involved India-based Generic Management Services (GMS), owned by Brijesh Kumar, and the infamous Romanian Accreditation Association (Renar), which is a paid member of the International Accreditation Forum (IAF), a sister company of The ANSI-ASQ National Accreditation Board (ANAB). Kroger said GMS, with the approval of its accreditation body Renar, issued an ISO 9001:2015 certificate to a company that did not exist at the time.

According to Kroger, the undercover operation was necessary to investigate a number of complaints from individuals in the quality community concerned with questionable business practices of ISO registrars and their accreditation bodies, particularly organizations pressuring U.S. business owners and major government contractors into a China influenced accreditation scheme known as the International Accreditation Forum (IAF).

Daryl Guberman, CEO of G-PMC Group, LLC, and inspiring candidate for United States Senate (http://www.darylguberman.com) released a video earlier this week detailing parts of the sting operation at (https://youtu.be/RA3ZPTkUG2g). Guberman helped organize the investigation by allowing ABAC to use his company’s name G-PMC Group disguised as a contract manufacturing company in Massachusetts. In reality, G-PMC Group is a leading ISO registrar incorporated in Delaware accredited by ABAC and the Industrial Leaders Group (ILG). Apparently neither GMS, Renar or IAF bothered to confirm whether or not the manufacturing company even existed.

ABAC mailed a copy of the certificate obtained in the sting to the International Organization for Standardization (ISO) headquarters in Switzerland. ISO is an independent, non-governmental international organization. A copy of the certificate can be found at http://imgur.com/a/d8oxd

“The sting was conducted to show the quality community the misconceptions of IAF accredited certificate mills and the accreditation scheme in general, and how such hypocrisy lacks essential checks and balances,” said Guberman. He added, “Think about it, if a company that does not even exist can acquire an ISO 9001:2015 certificate from a registrar overseen by an IAF accreditation body, then the whole system is highly skeptical, and appears to be no more than a pay-to-play racket.”

Richard Milton, one of the investigators in the sting said the operation was successful primarily because of a propagandist of the accreditation scam in Tampa, Florida misleading businesses. Milton said the individual is apparently not too bright, he easily took the bait and ran to IAF’s leadership literally begging they take action on the matter.

“Neither the scammer in Florida or IAF’s incompetent leadership had any idea it was a sting operation conducted to prove the fallacies and misconceptions of certificate mills and accreditation bodies belonging the International Accreditation Forum,” said Guberman. He concluded, “The sting proves that ANSI-ASQ National Accreditation Board (ANAB), IAF, ILAC, IAAC, and their conspirators are misleading businesses that have wasted thousands of dollars on these certifications, and these victimized companies need to take a stand and no longer tolerate such deceitful business practices from any organization.”

Kroger’s ending statement summed up the importance of the successful sting operation and how the accreditation scheme negatively impacts businesses and the quality community. “What crime do we have here? The white collar swindlers gain the businessman’s confidence through the use of high sounding trick organizations with buzz words in their titles such as “accreditation, national accreditation board, certificate, international organization,” and other quasi-authoritative junk words. They sell their dupes a complete bill of goods under the guise of touting the victim’s business quality, but only for exchanging his hard earned profits for a glittering piece of paper replete with lofty seals, symbols, and ISO numbers. After the investigation, you wonder how these crooks can suppress their laughter as the innocent boob hands over a considerable sum of money for their expensive illusions without follow up or support. It is a huge money magnet, this con game of providing castles built on air.” said Kroger.

IAAC, ANAB, IAF and NIST Probed For Crony Capitalism, Accreditation Fraud, and Antitrust Violations

Inspiring candidate for U.S. Senate (I-Conn) asks the FTC to investigate an accreditation scam costing taxpayers millions of dollars.

Washington, D.C. (USA), June 2nd, 2017 — The American Board of Accredited Certifications (ABAC) is seeking the assistance of the Federal Trade Commission (FTC) to investigate three privately-owned Organizations: the Inter-American Accreditation Cooperation (IAAC), The ANSI-ASQ National Accreditation Board (ANAB), and International Accreditation Forum (IAF) for allegedly conspiring with the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST), a non-regulatory agency of the United States Department of Commerce.

ABAC said the leadership of ANAB, IAF and IAAC should be investigated by the FTC for allegedly conspiring with NIST by utilizing government power and influence to implement an anti-competitive accreditation scheme designed to defraud U.S. businesses and American taxpayers of at least $2.5 billion during the years 2013 to 2017.

ABAC announced several months ago about its investigation of IAAC, ANAB and IAF for misleading U.S. businesses by falsely claiming official oversight that because it lacked impartiality. Accreditation is meaningless without impartial oversight. Details of the investigation has been released to the pubic at http://aboac.org/iaac-inter-american-accreditation-cooperation/

Daryl Guberman (http://www.darylguberman.com), CEO of G-PMC Group and potential candidate for United States Senate (I-CT) is asking the FTC’s Bureau of Competition to investigate the alleged anti-competitive practices and collusion between IAAC, NIST, ANAB and IAF. The Federal Trade Commission Act and the Clayton Act, both passed by Congress in 1914, give the Commission authority to enforce the antitrust laws. These laws prohibit anti competitive mergers and business practices that work to prevent hard-driving competition, such as monopolistic conduct, attempts to monopolize, and conspiracies in restraint of trade.

According to Guberman, concerns of IAAC’s certification practices have been brought to ABAC’s attention after IAAC’s certification of the ANSI-ASQ National Accreditation Board. The complaint cites the certification issued to ANAB is misleading and bogus because both organizations (IAAC and ANAB) are owned and/or managed by the same individual at the time known as Randy Dougherty. Public records show Dougherty is Vice President of ANAB as well as the Chairman of IAAC and former Chairman of the IAF and as of 2016 it’s treasurer at the time of the certification scheme between the organizations.

Within hours after the American Board of Accredited Certification announced it will seek FTC’s assistance on its investigation, Guberman said ANAB appeared to have removed from its Web site the article indicating IAAC’s certification of ANAB as seen here: http://www.dguberman.com/NIST_IAAC.pdf . The page that hosted the article is now being redirected to the home page. More suspiciously, Randy Dougherty’s name is no longer found on the leadership page of the ANAB website; it appears to have been removed overnight and replaced with the names of several other individuals under the role of Vice President.

Although the article that announced IAAC’s certification of ANAB has disappeared from the ANAB website, a snapshot of the article has been made available at https://postimg.io/image/4xzm9elfx. The snapshot includes a photograph of current IAAC Chairman Randy Dougherty being presented the certificate by Dougherty’s collaborator, and former IAAC Chair Ileana Martinez, who just so happens to be employed by NIST (http://gsi.nist.gov/global/index.cfm/L1-2/L2-2/A-386) which is the government agency Guberman wants investigated for defrauding American taxpayers and Crony capitalism, a term describing an economy in which success in business depends on close relationships between business people and government officials. It may be exhibited by favoritism in the distribution of legal permits, government grants, special tax breaks, or other forms of state interventionism.

As a NIST employee, Ms. Martinez is responsible for matters on global standards and coordination, and most notable she is involved in accreditation matters for the agency. Randy Dougherty, the Vice President of ANAB and Chairman of IAAC and Ileana Martinez, the prior chair of IAAC and a NIST employee appear to be the two key individuals behind the NIST-IAAC- ANSI-ASQ National Accreditation Board ANAB & IAF, accreditation scam. Ms Martinez has been replaced by Erik Puskar who is the new ANAB connection, according to Guberman. Numerous calls and emails to Puskar’s office has gone unanswered.

“As a non-regulatory agency of the United States Department of Commerce, NIST has no authority to join with IAAC and ANAB to restrain competition in the accreditation of quality management systems,” said Guberman. He added, “G-PMC Group, ABAC and its affiliates will continue to demand justice and expose any and all organizations and individuals engaged in capital cronyism, anti-competitive business practices, and those directly or indirectly restraining competition by spreading false information about ISO certification and accreditation.”

Guberman turned to face the the camera, and with a stern expression he concluded with a few last words, “As a candidate for U.S. Senate, I pledge to remain steadfast in my commitment to cease all forms of favoritism between government officials and their business cronies in the quality management community. Such collusion is disgustingly UN-American, and I guarantee to all those involved, including their fruitcake cohorts, the corruption ends now.”
