The need for recognition or accreditation had been stipulated in the 1961 General Order of Public Services Brunei Darussalam where based on the Order, accreditation of qualifications is the responsibility of appointed officers in relevant departments. For instance, assessment for qualifications in agriculture was referred to State Agriculture Officer while qualifications related to medicine were assessed by State Medicine Officer. As such practice is believed not to be beneficial, an independent accrediting body namely the Brunei Darussalam National Accreditation Council (BDNAC), Brunei Darussalam was established in 1990 by decree of His Majesty the Sultan and Yang Di-Pertuan of Brunei Darussalam. The establishment is mainly to ensure continuity towards assessment and accreditation activities.
Vision and Mission
Being the sole accreditation agency in Brunei Darussalam, the BDNAC has a mission to ensure and to maintain the quality and standard of educational credentials in accordance with the provisions as set and required by the Government of His Majesty the Sultan and Yang Di-Pertuan of Brunei Darussalam. The realization of this mission will eventually support its vision of establishing a national and international reputable accrediting agency.
