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.  If your facility is currently experiencing difficulties as a result of COVID-19, the Facility Director can contact the AASM Accreditation Department (accreditation@aasm.org) to request an extension.
