Accreditation

Definition

Accreditation — process in which a state or other standard-setting regulatory organization determines whether an entity seeking to provide services subject to that organization's authority meets acceptable standards for such purposes. For example, commercial insurers domiciled in a state that passes all the National Association of Insurance Commissioners (NAIC) model acts and otherwise passes muster will be acceptable security in other states.
