Wht is Accreditation

What is Accreditation?

Accreditation literally means: giving confidence. We want to be able to blindly trust that the quality of products and services is correct. We want to know that the results of blood tests are correct, that meat does not contain too many bacteria, that escalators are safe to use, that electronics engineers are acting professionally. All of this is only possible when certificates and reports substantiate what is being claimed.

Accreditation is formal, third-party recognition that an organization is competent to perform specific tasks - the work for which they are accredited. Accreditation can be voluntary or mandated by government. It is a continuous quality improvement process to demonstrate that internationally and/or nationally prescribed standards have been met.
