Quality Criteria for Accreditation and Certification of Systems and Institutions

The award of one of our offered seals for educational institutions or their quality management systems is based on defined quality criteria that are leading evaluation standards in the accreditation or certification procedure.

All ASIIN criteria are subject to critical revision on a regular basis and are adapted to current developments and findings from accreditation practice.
