Two Main Players to Accreditation:
∗ Accreditation Bodies (AB)
∗ Registrars (CB/CAB)
Accreditation Bodies (AB) and registrars (also known as certification bodies CBs) are accredited, and companies (you) are registered or certified.

The two most common type of audits are:
∗ Registered (Accredited)
∗ Certified (Compliance)
Accredited Registrations are performed by a registrar that is overseen by another party called an Accreditation Body (AB). Certain industries such as Aerospace, Automotive (tier 1) or certain Medical companies MUST have an accredited audit and registration. Some customers do not require accreditation and may only require a Compliance Certification.
