Accreditation: Get Accredited - Part 6: Response to Council Review

The Council on Accreditation may determine that Status Reports or Improvement Plans are required before Full Accreditation can be granted.

Status Reports

The Council on Accreditation may request that the Organization provide a Status Report after a site visit is complete. The purpose of the Status Report is to document for the Council on Accreditation activities performed to achieve compliance with a standard in which the Council has a specific concern or to report on progress of any areas or activities in transition. Examples include activities such as implementation of policies or forms or completion of an education or training program. The Council may request a Status Report from an Organization when awarding Full or Qualified Accreditation, Accreditation-Pending or Reaccreditation-Pending, or Probation. When the actions described in the Status Report do not satisfy the Council, the Council may place the Organization in Accreditation-Pending or on Probation.

Improvement Plans

If an Organization does not meet accreditation standards, the Council on Accreditation may request that the Organization provide an Improvement Plan. The purpose of an Improvement Plan is to document for the Council on Accreditation corrective actions an Organization has taken or will take to meet accreditation standards.
