For the qualification of Japanese professionals to be internationally recognized, it is important to ensure the international substantial equivalency of Japanese professional education. JABEE evaluates and accredits education programs with accreditation criteria in accordance with the concept of each accord: Washington Accord for engineering education programs, Seoul Accord for Computing & IT-related education programs and Canberra Accord for architectural education programs.
The signatories of the international accords are required to contribute to the accords’ activities. One of the contributions and obligations is to participate in the Periodic Reviews to other signatories and in the reviews to bodies applying for the signatory status. JABEE trains candidates for accord reviewers.
