Accreditation decisions

Please note:

1. Accreditation applies to the processes used to develop guidance and advice, but does not apply to the content.

2. In line with changes to the Accreditation Process Manual, from November 2011 public consultation is only applicable to negative accreditation decisions.

3. The decisions detailed below are for the full accreditation assessment programme. A new pilot is currently underway to assess individual guidelines, in a shorter process time. Application is by invitation only. Further information and detail of related decisions is available on the accelerated accreditation decisions web page.
