The ACS accreditation process is currently being redesigned in response to feedback and review. While preserving key criteria, the requirements have been clarified, guidelines refined and generic standards aligned with TEQSA. The ACS is aiming for simplified process leading to potential overall cost reductions and a more authentic evaluation.

In addition, there will be time for questions and answers about ACS accreditation and advice for those who might be seeking accreditation in 2019-2020.
