German Accreditation Council (GAC)
The Law establishing the foundation "Foundation for the Accreditation of Study Programmes in Germany" from 15 February 2005 serves as the legal basis for the activity of the Accreditation Council. The law sets up a legal framework for the binding definition of tasks, responsibilities and authorities of the central players in the accreditation system, i.e. the Accreditation Council and the currently six licensed accreditation agencies.
The independence of the Foundation for the Accreditation of Study Programmes in Germany is assured by its organisational structure. The members of the Accreditation Council are not bound by instructions.
