The following is from recent comments here at "Tex's Blog."
"I received the following e-mail message, looks like the Yager tool system is about to be accredited.
Note there is no mention of the tool profits, even though the tools are the major source of profit for the upline and a major source of loss for the vast majority of IBO's, as the accreditation process unfortunately does NOT require tool profits to be disclosed to IBO's or prospects.

Re: Best Practices Message: Acceptance
One of the criteria for accreditation with Quixtar is that
all IBOs understand Quixtar/Amway Global's best practices as explained
through the Quixtar/Amway Global IBO Communications Platform. The following
message is sent in accordance with the Quixtar Professional Development
We often describe this as an I-commerce business. Which
means that this business brings together the Internet, the Individual, the
Independent Business Owner Compensation Plan, and the full-service
Infrastructure provided by Quixtar/Amway Global. It means that anyone can
say, "This is a business I can do." And it also means it's a business open
With a business powered by Quixtar/Amway Global, you don't
have to be of a specific race or religion to have the opportunity to
succeed. You don't have to be affiliated with a certain political party. You
can be married or single, with kids or without, middle-aged or fresh out of
You see, this is an opportunity for anyone who has the will
to work hard and the drive to succeed. As long as we all have the common
goal of building this business bigger and better than ever, and building it
the right way, we can overcome any differences. In fact, we should embrace
our differences, because life would be pretty boring if everyone thought and
acted the exact same way.
It's important to remember that this business is about free
enterprise and the rights of Independent Business Owners to pursue their
dreams. That's a right that shouldn't be denied to anyone, if they're
willing to put forth the effort.
Thanks for all you do to build this business.

"Quixtar reviews all applications based on the above criteria and awards accreditation to individuals and/or organizations that satisfy all requirements. IBOs/organizations are accredited for a two-year period and are reviewed on an ongoing basis to ensure they remain in compliance with Accreditation Program criteria. Any breach of Quixtar's Rules of Conduct or actions that mean an IBO is no longer in good standing could result in revocation of accreditation."
The issue isn't whether they maintain accreditation, the issue is whether initial or ongoing accreditation fixes the biggest problem this business faces in the first place.
[The biggest problem is the tool scam and the lack of tool profit transparency][Accreditation] only requires transparency for those participating in the tool profits, which normally means Platinum and above. Also, I don't expect Platinums to know what Emeralds make, Emeralds to know what Diamonds make, etc. I confirmed this with Quixtar within days of accreditation being announced a couple of years ago, and commented on this issue on qblog.
This results in the tool companies getting the "Good Housekeeping" seal of approval when they don't deserve one. Prospects and IBO's will see the tool company is accredited and think everything is okay, when in fact they are being scammed with the same bait-and-switch scenario as today.
All of my comments would make a good blog article, in my humble opinion.
