In this paper, we introduce the notion of accepting H iso-array system which is defined by a finite set of permitting iso-arrays as a counter part of the well investigated accepting splicing systems defined by Mitrana et al. (2010). We compare the generative power of this system with that of some existing models such as controlled sequential pasting system, regular iso-array grammar, context-free iso-array grammar and study some properties of accepting H iso-array systems.
