Stars are often used as symbols for classification purposes. They are used by reviewers for ranking things such as movies, TV shows, restaurants, and hotels. For example, one to five stars is commonly employed to categorize hotels.

MBAS accredits conformity assessment bodies (CABs) that provide Ratings under a set of common quality standards agreed by the authorities. MBAS welcomes new CABs interested in applying; however the CAB needs to be aware that they will need to demonstrate that they are capable of providing Rating Services.

MBAS Accreditation Services for Rating are classified as :

• Service Ratings ( Eg. Hotel, Restaurant , Trading etc )
• Product Rating
