The Council’s ability to render sound judgement is enabled by institutions’ willingness to provide complete and candid information on its organization and programmes. The effectiveness and integrity of the accreditation process is therefore dependent upon a relationship of mutual trust between the Council and the associated institutions.

The information supplied by institutions and UCJ’s findings and recommendations relating to institutions and programmes are exchanged within an atmosphere of confidentiality and professional integrity.

Information about institutions not normally in the public domain will be treated as privileged information. The Council therefore will not publicize any statements or other data that institutions submit for accreditation purposes, nor will it make public the substance of any advice offered to institutions.
