  • a set of criteria against which DPs can be measured to ascertain they meet the required standards
  • the means by which DPs can provide appropriate evidence to enable measurement against the criteria
  • appropriate quality systems to enable fair and equitable reviewing and decision-making
  • a variety of information and guidance to support those applying for accreditation
