2

Download, complete and return the EASA Accreditation Program application form along with your non-refundable application fee payment ($300 for EASA members, $1500 for non-members; this fee covers 3 years in the program).

3

Select an EASA-sanctioned auditor. Auditor's fees are in addition to EASA's non-refundable application fee and may vary from auditor to auditor. EASA encourages participating service centers to interview the auditors to find the best match.

4

After you have selected an auditor, pay any fees charged by the auditor as well as provide them with a copy of the reciept for payment of the EASA Accreditation Program enrollment fee.

5

Prepare for and schedule your initial third-party (on-site) audit. (Note: third-party audits are required every three years. During years between third-party audits, accredited service centers are required to conduct internal self audits that will be reviewed by an EASA-sanctioned auditor.)

6

Conduct your initial third-party (on-site) audit. If disapproved, the auditor will describe the unacceptable condition(s) and list corrective action(s) that must be taken; completion of corrective actions often can be approved remotely by email, photos, etc. (There is no time limit for completing the initial third-party audit.)

7

After successfully completing your initial third-party (on-site) audit, the auditor will sign and date the audit checklist. This date will become your service center's ANNIVERSARY DATE in the EASA Accreditation Program.

The auditor will also forward to EASA a copy of the final signed audit checklist which will become part of your service center's permanent record. At this time, EASA will issue to the service center:

  • A customized EASA Accreditation Logo for use on company websites and in marketing materials.
  • A company listing as an EASA Accredited repair firm on EASA's website.
  • Placement of the EASA Accreditation Logo next to its member records in "Find A Member" lookups on EASA's website.
  • 100 serialized Accreditation Repair Labels for use on accredited repair jobs. (Additional labels are available for purchase in packages of 100.)
  • A customized press release that announces the firm's accreditation and explains the importance of EASA Accreditation for maintaining or improving the efficiency and reliability of repaired motors.
  • A customized Accreditation Certificate (printed and PDF).
  • A customized, tri-fold marketing brochure that you may print and distribute to your customers.
  • Announcement of accreditation in EASA's newsletter, Currents.
  • Secure storage of the completed audit (PDF) in the firm's password-protected company record at EASA's website.

Renewing your company's accreditation

The EASA Accreditation Program runs in a three-year cycle made up of a third-party audit, followed by two internal self-audits. To maintain accreditation, the service center must succesfully perform these audits. At the end of the third year, the cycle begins again with the payment of the non-refundable EASA renewal fee ($300 for EASA members, $1500 for non-members) and the successful completion of a third-party (on-site) audit.
