About accreditation

ASCB is in fact one of the leading international accreditation bodies in the world, respected for its integrity, practicality and impartiality. We belong to the Global Accreditation Forum (GAF), an international association for accreditation, which promotes best practices in quality assurance worldwide and we pride ourselves on being technically outstanding without being overly formal or stuffy.

Like an experienced mentor, as opposed to a judgemental overseer, we’re here to ensure you navigate a thorough, but swift path through to compliance. To date ASCB has accredited over 90 certification bodies, registered over 3500 assessors, auditors and quality related personnel achievements; and certificated over 30,000 organisations.

All certificated bodies, organisations and products are placed on the International Register (IRQAO) that has a live search function, providing the user with instant verification of the authenticity of any ASCB- and other accredited certificate holder.
