Why Is ANSI Accreditation Important?

Becoming ANSI Accredited means that the AC and CPC exams meet the highest of standards. This provides an added level of confidence in the certification and the people who hold the AC and CPC designation. It also protects the integrity of the AC and CPC programs and their legal defensibility.

ANSI accreditation involves a review of submitted material, a site visit to ensure compliance with their requirements, and verification of documents that have been submitted prior to the on-site visit. Due to a high degree of integrity and confidence that is associated with ANSI accreditation process, ANSI accreditation is generally recognized as the highest standard in personnel certification accreditation.

The standard used by ANSI to accredit certification bodies is an American National Standard as well as an ISO/IEC Standard. Accreditation to an international standard is extremely important for certification bodies that have global operations or aspirations. The American National Standard is important to facilitate government recognition.

ANSI follows an internationally-recognized process for accrediting organizations. ANSI conducts its accreditation in accordance with the requirement of ISO/IEC 17011 – Conformity Assessment – General Requirements for Accreditation Bodies accrediting Conformity Assessment Bodies. This International Standard is the foundational Standard that is used to recognize ANSI accreditation in any multilateral and/or mutual recognition agreements.

ANSI has a historical track record of successfully conducting accreditation of certification programs drawn from different industrial sectors from not-for-profits, large multinational corporations, and government agencies.
