ABC-Amega has been a member of the IACC, the world’s largest trade association for commercial debt collection companies, since 2002, and recently completed the association’s certification process.
To become certified through IACC’s Agency Certification program, we completed a rigorous application and audit process, which included requirements for education and training of staff, compliance with the program’s high standards for collection agency operations, and adherence to the IACC Code of Ethics.
