About us


DAAS (Directorate of Accreditation for Assessment Services) is an independent accreditation authority. It accredits certification Bodies and training organizations and also administers an auditor registration scheme. DAAS is independent, impartial and a model pioneer in the field of accreditation.

Operating in over 25 countries worldwide, DAAS is thought to be the major independent accreditation body in the world. The organization has been a persistent pioneer in the field of accreditation, well known and respected for its combination of innovative and user-friendly business acumen and its respect for the forceful maintenance of integrity and impartiality that is the hallmark of the quality declaration profession.

DAAS has pioneered novel approaches to accreditation that permit benchmarking via measurable evaluation of conformity assessment body (CAB), performance. We have gone a lot further than just 'yes'/ 'No' in our accreditation procedure. Our objective accreditation reporting permits us to monitor the performance of CABs year on year and delivers us the ability to determine, in detail, the manner in which CABs are achieving the levels of excellence we demand.

Accreditation is a procedure in which certification of competency, authority, or credibility is presented.

Accreditation by an independent authority means that when you choose a certification body to review your activities you are choosing someone who has been reviewed against defined standards. You will know that they have their own documented operating system and procedures for looking after your interests. You know that accreditation by DAAS has provided a level of assurance and recourse that is not normally available to business.

All organizations certificated by DAAS accredited organizations may be independently verified and their current certification status checked.
