ACPE Accreditation Dates
Make your ACCREDITATION REVIEW happen at the RIGHT TIME
Here are some interesting facts that will help you hit the mark:
• Your accreditation review date never changes – your review in a particular year may be postponed by applying to the Accreditation Commission for a postponement, showing good cause and having your regional accreditation chair support your request; however, this does not change the date for your center's next review. Example: If you receive a postponement for your full review or your five year review from 2008 to 2009, your next reviews are still due five or ten years after the original date of 2008.
• If for any reason you believe your accreditation date as reflected in the list below is NOT CORRECT, please contact the ACPE Interim Executive Director Deryck Durston to register your concern, or call Deryck at the national office at 404-320-1472 to discuss further.
• Candidacy or accredited centers may request postponement of scheduled accreditation review when one of the following acceptable circumstances has occurred:
• Candidacy centers who request postponement for good cause are not charged a fee. They are in a pre-accreditation stage and are not treated like fully accredited centers in this regard. In the case of candidacy centers, the next review date is the one by which the center needs to request a postponement or request movement to accredited center status.
• A postponement is not necessary if the review is taking place late in the year and will carry over into the next year. The review date is the date the process of review begins.
• For other important aspects of requesting a postponement, please consult the Accreditation Manual 2010.
