Am I Eligible?

To be eligible for assessment, an organisation must be an external evaluation organisation or a standards-developing body within the health or social care sector. Before an organisation can apply for accreditation of their organisation, ISQua EEA should first accredit or recognise at least one set of their standards.

Please read the Guidelines and Principles for the Development of Health and Social Care Standards, 5th Edition to determine if your standards are eligible for our programme.

In certain circumstances, external evaluation organisations that use standards developed by another body can apply for ISQua EEA accreditation of their organisation. For example, an organisation could assess against standards developed by their Ministry of Health. Evidence must be provided to demonstrate the agreement which is in place between the external evaluation organisation and the standards developer.
