1999

The Education Quality Accreditation Commission founders were aware of the need of international standard-setting instruments in the field of education quality and accreditation that were indispensable in a decentralized global world in order to keep pace with rapid changes in the private educational sector and to guaranty education quality standards, while promoting the development of efficient education quality and accreditation systems. Following the premise of thinking globally though acting locally, the Education Quality Accreditation Commission was rooted in the most representative socioeconomic environments of the Western World.

The Education Quality Accreditation Commission was incorporated in the United Kingdom with Companies House Reg. Number: 3.728.049 to best represent the interest of UK and Commonwealth countries in the provision of accreditation and quality auditing to education institutions.

2000

The Education Quality Accreditation Commission was incorporated in Washington D.C., USA, as a non profit corporation to best represent North America and the English language areas of influence. Additionally it was incorporated in Spain with Reg. Number: B80317283 to best represent the interest of European, Mediterranean and Latin American Spanish speaking countries.

The "Together in the World Foundation (TW)", which developed programs and activities in line with the orientations set out by UNESCO in respect to the promotion of social and cultural development, fostered the establishment of the Education Quality Accreditation Commission as the means to enhance the promotion of quality education and complement social and cultural development through sound independent educational initiatives. The Education Quality Accreditation Commission was deeply inspired by the UNESCO policy on education for the Twenty-First Century.

2001

The TW Foundation recognized the need of the Education Quality Accreditation Commission institutional autonomy for further development of the project. Mrs. Mercedes Lopez, director of TW Foundation, resigned her duties in relation to the Education Quality Accreditation Commission.

The activities, regulations and services of the EQAC were deeply revised. The website was redesigned. Eduardo Cano, from Spain, was appointed EQAC Secretary.
