Standard setting for Management and Leadership was originally the responsibility of the Management Charter Initiative, who later became part of the Management Enterprise Training Organisation METO. METO was de-recognised by the Department for Education and Skills (DfES) in March 2000.
However, the DfES recognised the continued need for public access to standards and associated products whilst they decided the long term future of the Management and Leadership standards.
The Chartered Management Institute was contracted to host an operationally independent caretaking team for the standards and the MSC came into existence in May 2000.
