This accreditation applies to operators of vehicles that seat more than eight passengers. Your service is required to confirm to at least one of the following four categories:

This accreditation system is used to assess whether you are of suitable character and fitness and that you have the competency to operate a public passenger transport service in accordance with the standards and conditions prescribed by the legislation.
