MERGING ICF-CY INTO ICF
The International Classification of Functioning, Disability and Health for Children and Youth (ICF-CY) is a WHO approved “derived” classification based on the International Classification of Functioning, Disability and Health (ICF). In the interest of a streamlined, comprehensive ICF which adequately addresses all aspects of functioning across the lifespan, the relevant stakeholders have agreed to merge the two classifications back into one while completing other updates and revisions. This Resolution outlines that decision and provides additional detail about the process moving forward.

International Classification of Functioning, Disability and Health ICF
The International Classification of Functioning, Disability and Health, known more commonly as ICF, is a classification of health and health-related domains. As the functioning and disability of an individual occurs in a context, ICF also includes a list of environmental factors.
ICF is the WHO framework for measuring health and disability at both individual and population levels. ICF was officially endorsed by all 191 WHO Member States in the Fifty-fourth World Health Assembly on 22 May 2001(resolution WHA 54.21) as the international standard to describe and measure health and disability.
ICF is operationalized through the WHO Disability Assessment Schedule (WHODAS 2.0). WHODAS 2.0 was developed through a collaborative international approach with the aim of developing a single generic instrument for assessing health status and disability across different cultures and settings.
For over a decade, the International Coach Federation has been leading the development of professional coaching. More than 20,000 coaches have participated in one of ICF’s three credentials, gaining coaching expertise and professional fulfillment. With an ICF Credential, coaches demonstrate not only knowledge and skill, but also a commitment to high professional standards and a strong code of ethics.
Anyone serious about building or maintaining a coaching business should pursue an ICF Credential and become part of this well-respected group that has chosen to regulate itself and provide accountability to clients and the coaching profession as a whole.
All ICF Credential-holders complete rigorous education and practice requirements, providing testimony to their commitment to excellence in coaching.
The mission of the ICF Credentialing program is to:
Protect and serve consumers of coaching services
Measure and certify competence of individuals
Inspire pursuit of continuous development
Research Proves the Advantages of Holding a Credential
ICF research has revealed several reasons coaches benefit from becoming a credential-holder. According to the 2012 ICF Global Coaching Study, credentialed coaches reported a higher-than-average income worldwide compared to non-credentialed-coaches, with the exception of the Middle East and Africa. According to the 2010 ICF Global Consumer Awareness Study, clients who worked with an ICF Credential-holder were more likely to be satisfied with their coaching experience and recommend coaching to others. In the 2010 ICF Global Consumer Awareness Study, 84 percent of adult consumers who had experienced a coaching relationship reported that it was important for coaches to hold a credential.
“Being a credentialed coach is how I say to the world, ‘I am a professional coach.’” —Julia Mattern, PCC
