This work is a comparison of four legal regulations and their quality assessment practices (A3ES vs EQA vs ISO 9001 vs ISO 4455).
As basic elements of cross-functional analysis and conceptual cross analysis, we present the analysis and discussion of the internal consistency of each of the standards.

Carried out an integrative discussion with the intention of enhancing the usefulness and signaling axes of analysis and assessment of evaluation practices on three different perspectives: perspective of the rated entity; perspective of the valuer; perspective of the public interest.

Discusses the error typology identifying practices that could be the cause of deficits in evaluative congruence of legal regulations - the legal error and the error of assessment practice.
