Uploading Attachments in the Online Application
Applicant facilities are required to upload and submit all attachments electronically. (Note: Case study materials [cases on CDs/DVDs] must still be shipped to the IAC office, in duplicate.)
The Online Accreditation application makes the uploading of electronic or scanned documents an easy process. Upon being prompted within the application questionnaire for a specific document, the user clicks “browse," selects the appropriate document from their computer or memory/storage device and then clicks “open." The document is uploaded to the correct location within the application and then saved once the user navigates away from that page by clicking the “previous,” “next” or “end” button at the bottom of the screen.
Only the file types in the box listed to the right may be used when uploading attachments to the application questions. The file size for each document must be less that 5 MB. This includes .zip/compressed files.
