In early March 2016 ERCCIS will be undertaking accrediation from the Association of Local Environment Record Centers.
The ALREC Accrediation scheme was launched in 2011 and aims to demonstrate that a Local Environmental Records Centre (LERC) mets (and excels) a particular level of standards. The accreditation recognises confidence in the given LERCs as a body which hold biodiversity information in trust for society and manage it's resources to excellent standards.
The ERCCIS staff and volunteers are excited about undertaking accreditation and hope to join eight other LERCs which have already been accredited through the scheme. ERCCIS endevers to continuiously develop and improve our services to recording community, as well as improving our provision of conservation information throughtout Cornwall and the Isles of Scilly.
