ASIIN also offers procedures for the accreditation of quality management systems. Here, a distinction must be made between the assessment procedure as the basis for awarding the seal of the German Accreditation Council (hereinafter: AR procedure) and the procedure for awarding the ASIIN system seal (hereinafter: maturity model). The AR procedure can only be offered to German universities. The Maturity Model is a national and international procedure that is of interest to all education providers offering programs at levels 6 and 7 of the European Qualification Framework.
The following diagram compares the two procedures with their similarities and differences. The blue framed procedure is the maturity model, the red framed procedure is the AR procedure.
