A newly incorporated entity has been established to administer credentialing programs related to green building practice and standards.  

The Green Building Certification Institute (GBCI), supported by the U.S. Green Building Council, was created to develop and administer credentialing programs aimed at improving green building practice.

GBCI will ensure that the LEED Accredited Professional program will continue to be developed in accordance with best practices for credentialing programs. To underscore this commitment, GBCI will undergo the ANSI accreditation process for personnel certification agencies complying with ISO Standard 17024, USGBC.

In January 2008, USGBC will transfer responsibility for the ongoing administration of the LEED Professional Accreditation program to GBCI. GBCI will manage all aspects of the LEED AP program including exam development, registration and delivery. GBCI will also oversee the development of the maintenance program for LEED AP credential holders.
