Accreditation decisions

Summaries of decisions to accredit are listed below:

In July 2021, we introduced a new assessment cycle replacing the previous full annual assessment. Every Register now has a full assessment against our Standards for Accredited Registers once every three years. We undertake annual monitoring in between the full assessments, to check whether there are any significant changes. You can read the most recent full report for each Register at the link below. Please note that whilst reports issued before July 2021 will indicate the accreditation was renewed for a year, accreditation is now ongoing if marked ‘Valid’ below. Reports issued before July 2021 will have been assessed under our previous Standards.
