Tourism accreditation is a business development tool and process designed to establish and continually enhance industry professionalism and standards. Accreditation assists tourism operators to meet ever-increasing domestic and international visitors’ expectations of receiving quality professional products and services leading to a positive total tourism experience. 

Operators can get accredited online by undertaking Tourism Accreditation Victoria's program. This program is a nationwide, uniform program which is based upon Quality Assurance Principles.

Accreditation provides both consumers and industry with an assurance that the accredited tourism business is committed to quality business practices and professionalism.

The primary focus is to ensure that consistent standards of product and service delivery meet and where possible, exceed the visitors' expectations.

To gain accreditation, tourism businesses must demonstrate their commitment to and use of specific business practices. These business practices are the essential elements of the Australian Tourism Accreditation Standard.
