2 7/9/13 HMG Accreditation RHUL – Distance Learning Summer School 2 of 14 Systems Accreditation Systems Accreditation is the process by which risks to HMG systems are formally expressed, mitigations are developed, implemented and assessed to ensure that the resultant residual risk is acceptable to the business. The primary output of the accreditation process is an RMADS
