Organisational Benefits of having IHRIM Qualified Staff

The Information Governance Toolkit Requirement 400 level 2 demands: There are appropriately skilled Information Quality and Records Managers/Officers in place and there are documented information quality and records management strategies approved by senior management/committee, which form part of the broader Information Lifecycle Policy.

The following criteria must all be satisfied: The roles of Information Quality and Records Managers/Officers have been appropriately assigned.


  • Named individuals' job description(s), notes or e-mails assigning responsibility.
  • Membership of a relevant professional body, or formal qualifications, or training certificates.


IHRIM can help your organisation to meet this demand. Junior staff can be assessed for Certificates of Technical Competence; more senior staff can sit IHRIM's exams at Foundation, Certificate and Diploma level. Studying for these qualifications brings a greater level of knowledge and expertise to NHS staff working in the fields of health informatics in health records (electronic or paper), information governance, information quality, clinical coding, audit, etc. IHRIM is the Awarding Body for the National Clinical Coding Qualification (UK).
