Legalization and Accreditation
International Accreditation Organization
IAO is an international educational quality assurance agency working to enhance the standards of education around the world.
American Association of Higher Education Accreditation (AAHEA)
American Association for Higher Education & Accreditation, Inc (Formerly AAHE), is the oldest association in the United States dedicated to the advancement of higher education.
Accreditation is a process in which certification of competency, authority, or credibility is presented.
Organizations that issue credentials or certify third parties against official standards are themselves formally accredited by accreditation bodies (such as UKAS); hence they are sometimes known as "accredited certification bodies". The accreditation process ensures that their certification practices are acceptable, typically meaning that they are competent to test and certify third parties, behave ethically and employ suitable quality assurance.
