Accreditation: general information
Certification is a procedure of official confirmation of high status and efficiency of activities of educational, scientific or any other organization, participating in scientific-educational process or contributing to its development. Accreditation approves the fact of formal guarantee (from the side of the Academy, within its competence and in accordance with its international prominence) of the correspondence of the status of an organization and its activities to high international standards for the third parties.
Accreditation is fulfilled in accordance with the decision of the IASHE Scientific Council on the basis of examination of the expert group conclusions as well as actual circumstances and documents, directly connected with the object of accreditation and the relevant organization. An accreditation procedure is approved by the Accreditation Certificate.
Except the implementation of accreditation procedures for institutions, systems and supplementary education programs, accreditation of relevant organizations and institutions is executed by the IASHE free of charge. If the person chooses the 3rd level of accreditation, he will be obliged to compensate transportation expenses, meals and accommodation of the agreed number of experts. These experts will carry out the accreditation process at the location of its object.
Traditionally the accreditation is a mutually binding procedure. Organizations and institutions which have been accredited by the IASHE accreditation must, in turn, examine projects and other areas of scientific and educational activities of the IASHE via appropriate sites and accredit the Academy on the basis of objective assessment of stated points in one way or another (in the free form).
Organizations which have been accredited by the IASHE upon the same level and attestation standard, thus, necessarily recognize similar accreditation of each other according to their accreditation ranking and are considered to be mutually accredited by each other. In addition, these organizations have to provide each other with advisory assistance and participate in mutually acceptable partnership programs upon the special request and in the agreed format.
