Welcome to the reaccreditation process. We make accreditation decisions three times per year, typically in March, July and December. We will initiate this process with your organization and we are here to help you successfully achieve reaccreditation. The timeline and major provider milestones are depicted below in a step-by-step illustration of the reaccreditation process.
Please contact firstname.lastname@example.org if you need assistance.
Notifications will be directed to your organization’s designated primary contact. Please use the ACCME’s Program and Activity Reporting System (PARS) to ensure that contact information is current and accurate. Log into PARS here. If you have questions about the PARS login process, please contact the ACCME.
Confirming Your Intent to Apply for Reaccreditation
To initiate the reaccreditation process, you’ll be asked to complete a Confirmation of Intent form in PARS to confirm that your organization intends to seek reaccreditation and to attest to your intent to continue to follow the ACCME’s Accreditation Criteria, Standards for Integrity and Independence in Accredited Continuing Education, and policies (accreditation requirements) and agree to fulfill the responsibilities associated with being an ACCME-accredited provider.
If your organization is unable to meet the ACCME’s accreditation process deadlines, you may request a one-time extension of your current accreditation term. If your request is approved, your current accreditation term will be extended approximately four months to the next ACCME decision cycle, and your accreditation review will be conducted in the subsequent decision cohort. The standard extension fee will apply (see Accreditation Fee Schedule).
Determining Your Cohort Milestones
Refer to the expiration date of your organization's current accreditation term to determine which decision cohort you are in. For example, if your organization's current term expires July 31, 2023, then you are in the July 2023 decision cohort. Use the steps below to deduce an approximate due date for each milestone.
