Steps to Become Accredited

Follow these simple steps to become an EASA-Accredited Service Center.

Step 1

Download the following documents:

  • ANSI/EASA AR100: Recommended Practice for the Repair of Rotating Electrical Apparatus
    ENGLISH | ESPAÑOL
  • Good Practice Guide of The Effect of Repair/Rewinding on Motor Efficiency (2003 EASA/AEMT Rewind Study)
    ENGLISH | ESPAÑOL
  • EASA Accreditation Program Audit Checklist
    ENGLISH | ESPAÑOL
  • EASA Accreditation Program Audit Checklist with Explanations
    ENGLISH | ESPAÑOL

Review these documents and make yourself familiar with them. They form the foundation of the EASA Accreditation Program.


Step 2

Download, complete and return the EASA Accreditation Program application form along with your non-refundable application fee payment ($300 for EASA members, $1500 for non-members; this fee covers 3 years in the program). A copy of the receipt as well as all materials related to your Accreditation can be viewed/downloaded from your company's profile page.

Step 3

Select an EASA-sanctioned auditor. Auditor's fees are in addition to EASA's non-refundable application fee and may vary from auditor to auditor. EASA encourages participating service centers to interview the auditors to find the best match.

Step 4

After you have selected an auditor, pay any fees charged by the auditor as well as provide them with a copy of the receipt for payment of the EASA Accreditation Program enrollment fee.


Step 5

Prepare for and schedule your initial third-party (on-site) audit. (Note: third-party audits are required every three years. During years between third-party audits, accredited service centers are required to conduct internal self audits that will be reviewed by an EASA-sanctioned auditor.)


Step 6

Conduct your initial third-party (on-site) audit. If disapproved, the auditor will describe the unacceptable condition(s) and list corrective action(s) that must be taken; completion of corrective actions often can be approved remotely by email, photos, etc. (There is no time limit for completing the initial third-party audit.)


Step 7

After successfully completing your initial third-party (on-site) audit, the auditor will sign and date the audit checklist. This date will become your service center's ANNIVERSARY DATE in the EASA Accreditation Program.

The auditor will also forward to EASA a copy of the final signed audit checklist which will become part of your service center's permanent record. At this time, EASA will issue to the service center:

  • A customized EASA Accreditation Logo for use on company websites and in marketing materials.
  • A company listing as an EASA Accredited repair firm on EASA's website.
  • Placement of the EASA Accreditation Logo next to its member records in "Find A Member" lookups on EASA's website.
  • 100 serialized Accreditation Repair Labels for use on accredited repair jobs. (Additional labels are available for purchase in packages of 100.)
  • A customized press release that announces the firm's accreditation and explains the importance of EASA Accreditation for maintaining or improving the efficiency and reliability of repaired motors.
  • A customized Accreditation Certificate (printed and PDF).
  • A customized, tri-fold marketing brochure that you may print and distribute to your customers.
  • Announcement of accreditation in EASA's newsletter, Currents.
  • Secure storage of the completed audit (PDF) in the firm's password-protected company record at EASA's website.
