In order to provide timely service, the ACR will notify you by email when it is time to renew your accreditation. The ACR will email your facility’s contact and Lead Interpreting Physician renewal notification approximately 8 months prior to your ACR accreditation certificate expiration. If you do not hear from us, please call our office so we may follow up on this for you.
The renewal application process is essentially the same as the process for new facilities.
To ensure that there is adequate time to process your application and evaluate images before your MQSA certificate expires, you must submit your completed renewal application and fee within 60 days. Facilities should allow at least 6 months for the reaccreditation process to be completed. For this reason, the ACR notifies each facility 8 months before their accreditation expires that it is time to renew. You may not legally perform mammography if your FDA certificate expires.
To start a renewal application in ACRedit, go to “My Modalities” and click the “Start Renewal” link.
If this column shows “N/A”, you may already have a draft application open, or you may not be close enough to your renewal date. Please check the “My Applications” page to view open draft applications.
