Mission Statement

The National Better Business Association is a Non-Profit Organization registered in the great State of Florida and is in active status.

Our Mission Statement as a established Organization nationwide is in regulating, assessing, rating, accrediting Businesses, and Religious Institutions for their good or bad business actions to the nation and take on the duty to provide consumers reliable information to help make decisions who to conduct business with. 

Accreditation

Accreditation is a progressive and time-proven way of helping organizations evaluate and improve their overall performance. The cornerstone of this strategy lies in the promulgation of standards containing a clear statement of professional objectives. Participating administrators then conduct a thorough self-assessment to determine how existing operations can be adapted to meet these objectives. When the procedures are in place, a team of NBBA Assessors verify that all applicable standards have been successfully implemented. The process culminates with a decision by an authoritative body that the agency is worthy of accreditation. NBBA accreditation is unique in that it offers businesses the benchmark to reach accreditation for increased consumer satisfaction, trust, and confidence. Business Accreditation is not required but is highly recommended for business strength, recognition, customer satisfaction, trust, and confidence.

Question: What happens if the business rating drops to 50% or below?
Answer:  If a business rating drops below 50%, it will be automatically unaccredited and it will be subject to start re-accreditation status.

Question: Why are some businesses not accredited? Or Why do some businesses have a bad rating?
Answer: Many times businesses fail to respond to the calls from the NBBA or they simply don’t want to resolve the issue over the phone due to negligence. This is the main reason why businesses don’t have a good rating and/or why businesses are not accredited.

Question: How do you accredit a (Religious) Institution?
Answer: Our trained Assessors evaluate the Institution based on their practices and structure plus they use our NBBA Religious Institution Accreditation Standards that contain the seven benchmarks that Religious Institutions must comply to for accreditation status.
