The National Register of Access Consultants (NRAC) is an independent register of accredited Access Consultants and Access Auditors who meet professional standards and criteria established by a peer review system. It is the only UK wide accreditation service for individuals who undertake access auditing and access consultancy. The NRAC also has Affiliates who support the NRAC but are not registered by the NRAC to carry out access work.
The NRAC is a resource for those seeking professional advice on how to make improvements to the built environment in accordance with the Equality Act 2010, which superceded the Disability Discrimination Acts 1995 and 2005. The online database of Members facilitates the selection of reputable, accredited access auditors and consultants. However, the NRAC does not promote, endorse or recommend individual Members or organisations to clients seeking access consultancy or audit services.
All members of the NRAC (Members) are required to adhere to a Code of Practice, hold professional indemnity insurance and undergo annual continuing professional development. The NRAC is also a learning network that provides support and information to its Members and Affiliates.
