Revision of Accreditation Standards
The process to revise JRCNMT accreditation standards occurs through a series of drafts that are disseminated for public comment. The JRCNMT reviews the comments pertaining to the current draft then uses them to create the subsequent draft. The cycle continues until no additional actionable input is received.
The final draft is sent to the four collaborating agencies for endorsement (majority required) then they are adopted by the JRCNMT. Programs are given a minimum of one year to come into compliance with the new Standards.
