An abbreviated version of the accreditation process, reaccreditation is required when an ANSI-Accredited Standards Developer (ASD) revises their accredited procedures for any reason. This may occur as a result of regular changes to ANSI’s Essential Requirements, at the request of the ANSI Executive Standards Council (ExSC), or at the ASD’s own initiation.
Here's what you do
Step 1: Submit your revised procedures to firstname.lastname@example.org, in strike-through-underline format with an explanation of all changes. Revisions should be submitted in a timely manner.
Step 2: Depending on the nature of your revisions, the review process will be one of the following:
For most substantive revisions, a full reaccreditation process is required – i.e., public review and ballot to the ANSI Executive Standards Council (ExSC) Subcommittee on Accreditation (SC-A).
- Limited revisions that appear to be in compliance with ANSI’s accreditation requirements may be balloted to the SC-A for approval; the SC-A may decide whether or not additional public review is necessary.
- Revisions that are made at the direction of the ExSC (e.g., in response to audit recommendations) and those made expressly to bring the procedures in to compliance with the current version of the ANSI Essential Requirements (or excerpted text from the Essential Requirements) may be administratively approved by ANSI staff on behalf of the ExSC.
Step 3: Your reaccreditation is approved and announced in Standards Action.
