AASM Accreditation COVID-19 Update

During this challenging time, AASM-accredited sleep facilities may be experiencing difficulties that affect their operations, including their ability to meet certain application/accreditation timelines; if extra time is needed to meet certain application/accreditation dates and timelines, the AASM will provide extensions.

Furthermore, if your facility is closed and/or staff are furloughed as a result of COVID-19, there may be specific AASM Accreditation Standards that the facility is unable to meet due to these circumstances. The AASM understands that certain time-sensitive or personnel-related requirements may not be met if the facility is not operating as usual due to COVID-19; however, this should be documented in the facility’s records, and facilities should make every effort to consider alternatives for meeting these standards.

If your facility is having trouble meeting accreditation deadlines or standards due to COVID-19, or has temporarily relocated, please contact


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.
