In 1970, the Presidential Commission to Survey Philippine Education (PCSPE) submitted policy recommendations to improve and strengthen higher education.

Among others, it recommended that schools be encouraged to join or organize accrediting associations, and that a Federation of Accrediting Agencies (FAAP) be established.

The Commission Report better known as the Integrated Reorganization Plan (IRP), was approved by President Marcos in his PD 201 and subsequently issued Presidential Decree 6-A, otherwise known as the Educational Development Act of 1972, making accreditation one of the means of upgrading standards of education in the Philippines and providing therein a program of financial assistance.

Laws and regulations have been issued to articulate the government’s policy on accreditation. BATAS PAMBANSA 232; R.A. 7722, Creating the Commission on Higher Education (CHED): DepEd Order 32, s 2005; CHED Order 1, s 2005 and the 2008 Manual of Regulations for Private Schools, have stipulated voluntary accreditation as means of ensuring quality education.
