Compliance to the TMI-ETMS™ standards-framework of client organizations working toward TMI-ETMS™ is assessed, verified and assured by TMI using the PRIDEScan™ mechanism as a way to audit. A combination of physical, onsite and digital methods is used under PRIDEScan™ in various auditing stages. The PRIDEScan™ system distinguishes the TMI-ETMS™ remarkably from all other standards by focusing on the depth and sustainability of an organization's compliance to the TMI-ETMS™ standards-framework.
There are five TME Drivers- practice, relevance, impacts, evolution and diffusion. The objective of a PRIDEScan™ exercise is to assess and validate how the five TME Drivers are embedded and adopted in an organization across each of the 14 TMI junctions in the TMI-ETMS™ standards-framework. A typical PRIDEScan™ report of an audit involves assessments on more than 350 TME Nuggets. Approvals for certification awards are decided on the basis of the PRIDEScan™ score achieved by the organization and an assessment of the pictorial Compliance Radar report.
