A friend of mine thinks "into" should be "to" and "was found" should be "has been found." I disagree. What do you think?
In the spring of this year, an agreement was signed with X that governs the admission of master watchmakers into the network of recognised service points, defines common training methods, and specifies equipment for watchmaking studios.

I think it is significant that the only authorities Parser found for 'admission into' were from 1849, 1884 and 1911. Bhaisahab and I (and Jasmin's friend) are living in 2010.
