ExcellenceAccredited institutions must uphold the highest quality standards in their operations, training, and so forth. Furthermore, this trust proves its commitment to excellence by adopting DARC Trust Standards and Practices, the ethical and technological principles for the responsible operation of trusted institutions, and satisfying the accreditation requirements derived from them.
Nonprofit organizations, particularly trustworthy ones, are increasingly being asked to show their accountability to the public. Accredited institutions have voluntarily submitted their organizations to an external, independent review of their practices. As a result, accreditation provides the public with the assurance that trusted institutions display the accreditation seal that meets established standards for organizational quality.
