AASM Temporary COVID-19 Considerations End July 1, 2022

Two years ago, the AASM implemented Temporary COVID-19 Policies for AASM-accredited sleep programs that had difficulty meeting certain application requirements or accreditation timelines. During this time, the AASM provided support/assistance to many AASM-accredited programs.

Effective July 1, 2022, the AASM will end the Temporary COVID-19 Policies and will revert to standard Accreditation Process and Policies. At that time, all accredited programs must adhere to all Standards for Accreditation and Accreditation Process and Policies.

Please contact the Accreditation Department at  with any questions.


Since 1977, the American Academy of Sleep Medicine (AASM) Standards for Accreditation have been the gold standard by which the medical community and the public evaluate sleep medicine facilities. Achieving AASM accreditation demonstrates a sleep medicine provider’s commitment to high quality, patient-centered care through adherence to these standards.
