Important Notice about Provisional Accreditation

Since it was first offered in 2006, provisional accreditation has been available to any sleep disorders center or laboratory for sleep related breathing disorders. This is a reminder that beginning July 1, 2008, provisional accreditation is only available for the following facilities:

  1. A new start-up sleep disorders center or laboratory for sleep related breathing disorders
  2. A new facility opened by an existing sleep disorders center or laboratory for sleep related breathing disorders

Applications from sleep centers and laboratories that have been open for greater than six months will not be accepted after July 1, 2008.

Please remember that all AASM-accredited sleep disorders centers and laboratories for sleep related breathing disorders and facilities applying for AASM accreditation must meet the most current Standards for Accreditation, which are always posted on the AASM Web site www.aasmnet.org/AccredStandards.aspx.

More information on accreditation is available at www.aasm.org under Sleep Centers and Labs, including FAQs and accreditation tips. You may also contact the accreditation department at accreditation@aasm.org.
