Transfer of Accreditation

Accreditation is not automatically transferable when an accredited organization changes ownership or control such as by merger, consolidation, or sale. The AAPSF must be advised in writing within 30 days of any such change. If AAPSF decides that a resurvey is necessary because of such a change, the facility must submit a new Application for Survey with the required fee within 21 days of notification by the AAPSF. Failure to comply with these provisions may result in the loss of accreditation. If an accredited facility closes completely or drastically alters its pattern of practice, then the Certificate of Accreditation issued by AAPSF must be returned
