Why get accreditation?

It shows that your work as an individual or organisation is highly competent and that your consultancy has the knowledge, skills and expertise to carry out human factors work to a high standard.


Consultancies accredited by us are promoted here and in response to enquiries. We only recommend accredited consultancies and give referrals to people who ask us about human factors assistance.


You can use a special CIEHF-accredited consultancy badge and the text “This is a CIEHF Registered Consultancy” in your publicity for your business, giving it credibility and enabling it to stand out from the crowd.
