As the main task of this project is to find out which quality criteria are essential for the different stakeholders of the medical tourism industry, it is very important to define what quality exactly is and how it is perceived in the medical sector.

Every accreditation system in this report has been analysed by means of a table, followed by a short explanation. The various systems are divided up in inbound and outbound countries, countries that were not taken into account yet and accreditation systems that operate on a Meta level. All the systems are arranged in alphabetical order divided in the four categories.
