Welcome to the reaccreditation process. We will initiate this process with your organization and we are here to help you successfully achieve reaccreditation. Please contact info@accme.org if you need assistance.

Notification

Your organization’s designated primary contact will be notified by the ACCME approximately 15 months in advance of your current accreditation expiration. Providers should use the ACCME’s Program and Activity Reporting System (PARS) to ensure that contact information is current and accurate. Login to PARS here. If you have questions about the PARS login process, please contact the ACCME.

The ACCME’s notification will inform your organization that your reaccreditation decision cycle is open and the materials for your organization are available in PARS. Coincident with the notification, provider timelines, important milestones and other tools and resources will be posted on the ACCME website.

Confirming Your Intent to Apply for Reaccreditation

You will be asked to complete a form in PARS that will 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 Commercial Support, and policies (accreditation requirements) and agree to fulfill the responsibilities associated with being an ACCME-accredited provider.

Deadline

If your organization cannot 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. You will be required to meet the administrative deadlines applicable to the new decision cohort. Requests for extensions must be completed in PARS. The standard extension fee will apply (see Accreditation Fee Schedule).
