Standards and Quality Committee (SQC) / InterSearch Academy

Established in 1991, the Standards and Quality Committee (SQC) sets international guidelines for InterSearch’s partner firms. Clients can be assured of the best service and quality, regardless of region or location.

All partner firms have been selected for their experience and excellent reputation in their own country as well as their ability to operate internationally.

Additionally, we have instituted the InterSearch Academy, an internal training school for consultants and researchers to better meet the needs of our cross-cultural clients.
