Company Partner Accreditation is the mark of research excellence. It demonstrates your organisation’s commitment to quality research and insight as well as keeping your business compliant, upskilled and competitive.

M&S are pleased to be part MRS and are committed to delivering excellence. Company Partner Accreditation helps the teams at M&S develop personally and professionally building networks and skills that enable better insight with sharper actionable insight: more “so what do we do” conversations.

MRS Company Partners receive preferential status in the market. Accredited companies are exempt from the restrictions of the BT Protect Service. MRS also ensures that Company Partners enjoy preference on key government and business rosters.


With accreditation your reputation is secured. The cornerstone of MRS Company Accreditation is the MRS Code of Conduct. This validates that you operate to the highest professional standards and helps build new business contracts.
