Employers interested in obtaining a new IM/RTW certification have until June 30th, 2013 to do their IM/RTW audit. Employers (BASE, SEBASE and ISEBASE) committed to obtaining their first IM/RTW certification, and doing their audit, by June 30th, 2013 must submit written notice to the Council by February 20, 2013.
