On the Accreditation Process page you can view all the steps of the accreditation process. Submitting an accreditation application is the first step in the accreditation process.
To submit an accreditation application, you will need to gather various documents from your own operations – depending on the standard you choose. The length of the process to have all the necessary information ready within your organization varies from organization to organization. However, do not underestimate the time investment. Especially if the subject matter is new to your organization. During this preparation period, you can use our Application Tool to collect the documents for your accreditation application.
Once you have gathered the necessary information and submitted the accreditation request, it will take (up to) four weeks for us to review your accreditation request. If we have approved your accreditation request, you will move on to the second step of the accreditation process: the preliminary examination.
