ECA works towards a European model for the mutual recognition of accreditation and quality assurance results (or decisions). The result of ECA’s work is laid down in several types of documents.
The members of ECA have agreed on their aims, project organisation and main activities in the Agreement of Cooperation.
In the strategic management plan the vision, mission, aims, objectives and goals of ECA are explained.
Quality assurance agencies established a formal agreement through which accreditation decisions will be recognised (more or less) automatically in several countries.
ECA actively cooperates with a range of international quality assurance networks.
