Getting Started

Designed to serve facilities as an educational tool, IAC Vein Center accreditation is made up of two crucial steps.

  • Review of the IAC Standards & Guidelines. First, facilities conduct a self-evaluation by reviewing the IAC Standards. Standards are the minimum requirements to which an accredited facility is held accountable. Download the Standards
  • Completion of the Online Application & Submission of Case Studies. Second, facilities utilize IAC Online Accreditation to complete and submit their application. Completion of the application requires detailed information on all aspects of facility operation as well as the submission of actual case studies for review. Review the requirements in the Accreditation Checklist

Online Accreditation

The IAC Online Accreditation application process is similar for both first-time applicants and those applying for reaccreditation. All applicant facilities utilize the Online Accreditation application to prepare and submit their applications to the IAC. This application format serves as a repository for accreditation data, allowing facility personnel to access previously submitted information and make updates at any time during the three-year cycle once accreditation has been granted.

The application also has a QuickFill feature which retains previous application data (answers and attachments) and copies the information into your reaccreditation application.
