In keeping with the IAC’s continued commitment to streamlining and simplifying the accreditation process, we are pleased to announce that the public has the opportunity to comment on proposed changes to the IAC Standards and Guidelines for Vascular Testing Accreditation. The proposed revisions are only applicable to Section 2B: Intracranial Cerebrovascular Testing. No other revisions to additional sections of the Standards are proposed at this time.
The Standards are reviewed periodically by the IAC Vascular Testing Board of Directors and revised as needed. As a component to the accreditation process, proposed Standards that have been approved by the Board of Directors are then posted to the IAC website for a public comment period. These proposed Standards include changes to the current Standards and/or the addition of new Standards.

- Select the proposed Vascular Testing Standard you wish to comment on;
- A window will expand with the description of the existing Standard and the proposed change on the left;

At the close of the comment period, the IAC Vascular Testing Board of Directors will review all submitted comments, consider modifications as needed and vote for final approval of the Standards.
