I. The State of California Department of Consumer Affairs Registration.
At this moment, the consumers do not have any government agency to file their complaints against the Credential Evaluation Services. Credential evaluation services have remained unregulated. We have decided to set an example by registering voluntarily with the Department of Consumer Affairs.
California University FCE will comply with applicable Federal and State statutes. It will abide by the rules & regulations, and the standards set by the Department of Consumer Affairs. This is our best guarantee to the consumers.
II. The Better Business Bureau Accreditation.
The Better Business Bureau (BBB) is a Consumer Rights’ Advocate and the highest private consumer protection agency in the United States of America. Businesses and academic institutions that can not maintain the highest standards set by BBB are excluded from membership. Only those businesses and academic institutions that consistently maintain the BBB Code of Ethics and Standards are accredited members.
State universities, such as the University of California-San Diego and other private institutions are accredited members. California University FCE is proud to be an accredited member with an exemplary AAA rating.
It is sad to note that very few credential evaluation services qualified for the Better Business Bureau accreditation, yet they continue to serve the public. The consumers have no place to file their complaints against erring Credential Evaluation Services who are not members of the Better Business Bureau.
The International Education and Research Foundation, Inc. (IERF) and other credential evaluation services that are members of the National Association of Credential Evaluators (NACES) are also accredited members of the Better Business Bureau.
