But the subset of knowledge that applies to techwriting is probably best defined
and controlled by specific industry organisations. It is the specific industries
that benifit from a techwriter having basic/minimum knowledge in that
field/industry and it is the industry that knows or can best determine what that
minimum knowledge is. So what can a generalist techwriting body provide
certification in?

Perhaps the generalist organisation should not offer certification but be a
driving force to implement techwriter certification in the inductry groups. It
could serve as a top level integrator or repository of available industry
certification programs. Much like relationship of ANSI to the ASME, SAE, IFI,
and other organisations.
