The purpose of EAB is to provide a single point of contact to facilitate joint accreditation visits and to encourage consistent accreditation processes and good practice.
As well as carrying out joint accreditation visits, EAB meets three times a year to discuss accreditation-related issues.
EAB accreditation visits may be arranged where a Higher Education Institution (HEI) wants three or more professional engineering institutions to accredit a single degree or a suite of related programmes. If just one or two professional engineering institution(s) are required for an accreditation visit, please contact the institutions(s) directly.
Those HEIs opting for an EAB visit have one point of contact through the EAB secretariat, receive a single visit to assess their various disciplines or programmes, and complete only one set of submission documents. The HEI will receive one visit report.
A number of professional engineering institutions currently charge for accreditation visits and/or recover accreditors’ accommodation and travel expenses. These charges vary from institution to institution and charging information can be provided on request.
There is no common policy on charging. It is a matter for an individual professional engineering institution to decide whether or not to make a charge for accreditation.
Note: any requests for EAB visits outside of the UK will be considered on a case by case basis and are likely to be subject to additional charges due to the additional costs involved.
For further information about EAB visits, to request a visit or if you have a question about accreditation-related activity, please email the EAB secretariat at: email@example.com
