ICDL Arabia has produced a set of standards and quality guidelines which govern the procedures for the ICDL concept and ensure that it is operated in a consistent fashion in all member countries through adherence to these common quality standards. The ECDL Foundation has appointed and licenced ICDL Arabia as the sole body to implement and disseminate the program in the Gulf Region, Egypt and Iraq with the support of the region's leading educational institutions and accreditation bodies.
A key factor behind the success of the ICDL certification programme has been an emphasis on consistently high quality standards. These standards are not merely aspirational. ICDL Arabia operates a comprehensive Quality Assurance system made up of its Operator Audit Programme and its Quality Management System.
