The Office of Archives, Statistics and Research (ASTR) holds to the principle that denominational accreditation is not dependent upon regional, state, or national requirements. Nevertheless, many of the criteria established by ASTR coincide with international archives and records management standards.
The accrediting standards used by the Office of Archives, Statistics and Research comprise the criteria for accreditation. These criteria are subject to periodic evaluation and provide consistent guidelines for the evaluation of archives and records centers.
