The Canadian Identification Society Footwear Certification Board was established by the Canadian Identification Society to provide, in the interest of the public and of the criminal justice system, a program of certification in footwear examination. In purpose, function and organization, the CIS Footwear Certification Board is thus analogous to the certifying boards of other specialties and scientific fields.
