CPCP Credential Statement of Use & Code of Ethics
 CPCP Credential Statement of Use

The Certified Purchasing Card Professional (CPCP) designation is granted by the Purchasing Card Professional Certification Council (PCPCC) and National Association of Purchasing Card Professionals (NAPCP) to individuals who have demonstrated experience and mastery of the body of knowledge necessary to administer a Purchasing Card program.

Once qualified, the NAPCP grants each CPCP the right to use the designation on correspondence, business cards and so forth, for as long as the certification remains in force and effect. Use of the "CPCP” designation is an excellent way to be recognized for a distinguished level of expertise.

The CPCP credential initials are the exclusive and sole property of the NAPCP. Once a certification has lapsed, the individual may no longer use the CPCP initials. 


Code of Ethical and Professional Standards

As a Certified Purchasing Card Professional (CPCP) and/or a CPCP candidate, I will strive to adhere to the highest levels of ethical and professional behavior at all times. It is my personal responsibility to:


  • maintain the integrity of the CPCP examination by not disclosing exam content to other individuals 
  • comply with the law in all activities relating to my Purchasing Card program (or my clients' card programs), positively influence workplace practices, and report illegal behavior
  • maintain ethical leadership by demonstrating and promoting the highest standards for confidentiality, honesty, and integrity and questioning practices and procedures when necessary
  • build trust by avoiding the intent or appearance of conflicts of interest, unethical or compromising practice in relationships, improper actions and/or indiscreet communications
  • manage confidential or proprietary information with due care and proper consideration for ethical, legal and regulatory ramifications
  • understand and respect the policies and regulations of both my employer and the card provider organizations with whom I am associated
  • develop and maintain a professional level of competence and credibility through continuing education and pursuit (and retention) of professional certification through the CPCP program
  • act as a mentor by contributing to the body of knowledge and growth of the Purchasing Card profession and encouraging others to expand their knowledge of the discipline

 We can only encourage others to follow if we first choose to lead the way!
