CIAC acknowledges that the primary responsibility for quality rests with government of the country of their origin however as an external quality assurance third party CIAC operates to enhance the QA Benchmarking, for which QA agencies are responsible, fulfils a different need: at its best it combines both accountability for the reassurance of the public and an objective and developmental role for enhancing quality in organizations & institutions. The role of national authorities is to define the given national QA setup and to ensure that the national QA system operates in harmony with the global network.
CIAC is committed to respect the fitness for purpose principle (purpose-process alignment) that is at the core of the global dimension of quality assurance.
CIAC considers the autonomy of organizations & institutions and independence of quality assurance agencies within national quality assurance systems as a necessary condition to ensure the full exercise of their responsibilities, notably with regard to the provision of accurate and consistent information to the general public.
