AMCs that have adopted this standard have made a commitment to uphold and deliver the highest possible level of customer service using a documented set of best practices. In 2002, AMR was one of the first five firms to achieve this designation, and remains one of only 19 charter accredited firms. AMR attained re-accreditation in 2006, 2010, 2014 2018, and 2022
