•• Registry Operators provide Accredited Registries.
For a Registry to be Accredited with the I-REC Standard it must provide an accurate, auditable, and permanent record of the lifecycle of a Product Certificate.
In general, there is a single Registry per Product Certificate. The Registry is appointed by the Code Manager of that Product Certificate. All Accredited Registries must allow for the development of Platforms via APIs and facilitate all other requirements of Product Code for which they support.

For a Registry to be Accredited, it must, in addition to being supported by an Accredited Code Manager, must provide a preliminary report, and undergo a rigorous IT review of its technical capacity and chance for robust implementation.
