The World Association of Chefs Societies (WACS) will assume administration and implementation of the WACS Certified Chef (WCC) certification program, currently managed by the American Culinary Federation (ACF), starting Sept 1.

The WCC certification, administered by ACF since its institution in September 2006, is based on international standards of education and training, with qualifications determined by individual member countries. As the current administration agreement with ACF ends, WACS has sufficient resources to preside over the certification program from now on. John Clancy, WACS certification chair, will assume responsibility for administration.
