Once your facility has submitted the online application and uploaded the corresponding materials, the IAC will begin the process of reviewing the completed application and rendering a decision.
Upon an application’s submission to the IAC office, it is imported into the database, enabling the IAC to begin the internal review process. The application review process generally takes approximately 8 to 10 weeks to complete, at which time the decision is provided to the facility*.
*For expedited applications, ensure that all documentation and images are received by the IAC within two business days after final submission of the application.
After the review process has been completed, the facility will be notified of the accreditation decision [Grant, Conditional Grant*, Delay, Deny] via a notification letter that may be downloaded from the Online Accreditation portal.
In addition to the documentation provided in the Online Accreditation portal, facilities that are granted accreditation receive two shipments, a Certificate Kit and a Marketing Kit, both sent to the attention of the appointed Technical Director**.
*Conditional grants are applicable to facilities applying in Vein Center/Vascular Interventional, Carotid Stenting, Cardiac Electrophysiology, Cardiovascular Catherization only. Once a conditional grant is rendered, a site visit will be scheduled. Accreditation will be extended to the full three-year period from the original date of decision after compliance is demonstrated at site visit.
**Packages are shipped to the attention of the Medical Director for facilities granted accreditation in Vein Center/Vascular Interventional, Carotid Stenting, Cardiac Electrophysiology, Cardiovascular Catherization.
