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

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.”

ABAC, Others Call For FTC To Investigate Lockheed Martin For Antitrust Violations

The American Board of Accredited Certifications (ABAC) is calling for the the Federal Trade Commission Bureau of Competition to investigate Lockheed Martin for allegedly colluding with two other organizations in effort to restrain competition.

Washington, DC (USA), April 6th, 2017 — Daryl Guberman, CEO of Connecticut-based G-PMC Group, LLC, and a possible candidate for U.S. Senate (http://www.DarylGuberman.com) asked the FTC to investigate whether the aerospace giant Lockheed Martin violated antitrust laws and possibly engaged in espionage by colluding with China-led International Accreditation Forum (IAF) and Wisconsin-based ANSI-ASQ National Accreditation Board (ANAB). Both IAF and ANAB are currently under investigation by the American Board of Accredited Certifications (ABAC), a private non-partisan accreditation body and observer group that over-sees, investigates and sets rules for recognized certification and accreditation bodies in the United States.

Guberman and MFGpartners president Don LaBelle have submitted complaints to the FTC’s Bureau of Competition alleging Lockheed Martin is restraining competition by only accepting a single accreditation body group for its suppliers certified to the AS9100 standard. Guberman said Lockheed Martin’s leadership will only recognize certificates of suppliers and prospective suppliers with certification bodies recognized by the Chinese led International Accreditation Forum (IAF). The Chairman & President of IAF is Chinese national Xiao Jianhua (See: http://dguberman.com/Lockheed_Weakens_US_Defense.pdf)

“It’s a slap in the face to every American citizen and taxpayer knowing Lockheed Martin, the country’s largest federal contractor receiving billions in tax dollars is forcing the hand of American manufacturers by requiring their ISO certification is accredited and/or recognized by China-led International Accreditation Forum (IAF),” said Guberman. He added, “The FTC must investigate this matter for the possibility of corporate espionage, collusion with a foreign led entity, and perhaps treason.”

If elected Senator, Guberman said he will push for a new Antitrust Act, a bipartisan bill to hold organizations accountable, particularly federally-funded corporations shown to be restraining competition by utilizing an anti-competitive accreditation scheme designed to limit the recognition of certification bodies lacking accreditation and/or membership of a particular non-governmental organization or collaborated group. In short, the bill will ensure equal opportunity for registration companies certifying businesses to quality management standards set forth by The International Organization for Standardization, which is an international standard-setting body composed of representatives from various national standards organizations.

The Sherman Act already outlaws every contract, combination, or conspiracy in restraint of trade, and any monopolization, attempted monopolization, or conspiracy or combination to monopolize. The penalties for violating the Sherman Act can be severe, individuals and businesses that violate it may be prosecuted by the Department of Justice.

ABAC warned the quality community last year of a strategically designed and well funded accreditation program that is potentially enabling corporations such as Lockheed Martin to violate antitrust laws without appearing to be in violation by claiming the accreditation is an “option” or simply a “preference” over alternative sources. Guberman said in Lockheed Martin’s documentation, the company is allegedly concealing its antitrust activities by claiming its requirement for IAF recognition and/or ANAB accreditation is only a “preference” for its suppliers. Suspiciously, none of Lockheed Martin’s first-tier suppliers appear to be certified by an ISO registrar independent of the ANAB-IAF collaboration. The complaint cites even more troubling is Lockheed Martin management sits on the board of IAF as an associate member, and enjoys voting privileges on policies. Conflict of interest? See http://dguberman.com/fff.pdf

ABAC reported last year both ANAB and IAF may be controlled by the same individual. Tax records show Randy Dougherty, an individual believed to be living in Michigan serves in leadership roles for both the International Accreditation Forum (IAF) and the ANSI-ASQ National Accreditation Board (ANAB). See: http://dguberman.com/IAF_tax_report.pdf

“Lockheed Martin has monopoly power in the aerospace industry and it’s possibly using that dominance to coerce its suppliers to pay ANAB and IAF accreditation and membership fees without an option for an alternative source,” said LaBelle. He concluded, “Anti-competitive practices have a negative effect on the economy, pricing, and quality because of limited options for the buyer, and therefore, the Federal Trade Commission needs to investigate if Lockheed Martin is engaging in anti-competitive business practices, and whether or not the aerospace conglomerate is aware of the widely unknown collaboration between IAF and ANAB and it’s leadership connection, especially the China-led International Accreditation Forum.”

Guberman’s complaint warns the accreditation scheme could be defrauding taxpayers more seriously than originally reported. Public records show The Department of Commerce NIST (National Institute of Standards Technology) has awarded millions of dollars to the Manufacturing Extension Program (MEP) which has 60 NIST-MEP entities in 50 states. Guberman said all of them follow the same anti-competitive accreditation scheme by “recommending” only certification bodies accredited by The ANSI-ASQ National Accreditation Board (ANAB), without providing an alternative source. The NIST-MEP-ANAB collaboration is designed to shut out ANAB competitors in which NIST sends millions in federal funds to MEP entities across the country, and in return MEP exclusively promotes ANAB by claiming it to be their “preferred” accreditation body for ISO certifications. The NIST-MEP-ANSI-ANAB accreditation scheme was first exposed by Guberman-PMC at: http://dguberman.com/NIST_ANAB_ANSI_ASQ_IAF_IAAC.pdf

A spokesperson for the American Board of Accredited Certifications said ABAC will continue to push the Federal Trade Commission to do its job and protect taxpayers by pursuing anti-competitive conduct as violations of Section 5 of the Federal Trade Commission Act, which bans unfair methods of competition and unfair or deceptive acts or practices such as the ‘pay-to-play’ accreditation scheme running wild in the certification of quality management systems that has spread without checks and balances to private, public and government sectors.
