Accreditation of HE in Japan: English-language resources and links

I read through the English-language pages of the accrediting organizations' websites. Japanese language content tends to be more extensive and updated more frequently, but I'm assuming readers of JPN HEO blog prefer English-language resources. There are four general accrediting bodies overseeing institutions undergoing accreditation. All institutions were required to do this within 7 years from 2004 until 2011. I have also included information about  the Japan Accreditation Board for Engineering Education (JABEE) and its overseas network because of the impact this sort of specialty accreditation is having on science and technology departments in Japan.
