ASCB(E) is independent, impartial and a paradigm pioneer in the field of accreditation.

Operating in over 25 countries world wide (See Google Maps), ASCB(E) is thought to be the largest independent accreditation body in the world. Established in 1995, the organisation has been a persistent pioneer in the field of accreditation, well known and respected for its combination of innovative and user-friendly business acumen and its respect for the vigorous maintenance of integrity and impartiality that is the hallmark of the quality assurance profession.

ASCB(E) have pioneered novel approaches to accreditation that permit benchmarking via quantitative evaluation of conformity assessment body (CAB), performance. We have gone a lot further than just 'yes'/ 'No' in our accreditation process. Our objective accreditation reporting permits us to monitor the performance of CABs year on year and provides us the ability to determine, in detail,  the manner in which CABs are attaining the levels of excellence we demand.

Accreditation by an independent authority means that when you choose a certification body to review your activities you are choosing someone who has been reviewed against defined standards. You will know that they have their own documented operating system and procedures for looking after your interests. You know that accreditation by ASCB(E) has provided a level of assurance and recourse that is not normally available to business.

All organisations certificated by ASCB(E) accredited organisations may be independently verified and their current certification status checked. In addition all students who have succesfully completed ASCB(E) accredited training courses are listed and may be independently verified. For further details see the IRQAO web site.

  • Having recourse to a higher level of authority if needed. 
  • Knowing that the Certifying Body operates to defined procedures that are continually reviewed.
  • Knowing that you have a balanced level of service that does not compromise your business operations .
  • Knowing that you have someone to turn to if you have a problem with the quality of supplies or products.
