The Accreditation Process
IAS accredits organizations by verifying their technical competence and assessing their quality management systems based on recognized industry standards.
The accreditation process begins with the customer’s submittal of an application, applicable fees, and documentation cited in the applicable IAS accreditation criteria.
An IAS accreditation officer partners with each customer throughout the accreditation process, beginning with a review of the submitted data and the requested scope of accreditation.
Once the data has been reviewed and determined to comply with the applicable criteria, IAS matches an assessment team, comprising quality system, technical, and subject matter experts, to the requested scope of accreditation. The team conducts an on-site assessment and develops an assessment report.
After satisfying IAS accreditation requirements and demonstrating technical competence, the customer receives an accreditation certificate.
