The Accreditation Services provided are intended not only as a means of evaluation, but also to encourage safe, efficient and accident free aviation operations in support of public safety missions.  The overall program is designed to objectively evaluate and certify a unit’s compliance with the Standards as developed by APSAC and adopted by APSA as best practice standards.  The Commission recognizes and accepts its responsibility to fairly review and evaluate the relevancy and applicability of the standards as they apply to each unit evaluated.
