Committee Review. This is the final step of the accreditation process reviewed by 3-4 committees (depending on the geographic location of the petitioning organization) that include professionals from a variety of areas in health care as well as industry experts selected from or chosen by Advisory Board Committee. The committee review process begins with a written summary documenting the findings of the Initial Review and site surveyors. This summary is submitted to  the Accreditation Committee for evaluation with discussion with the review team as needed. An accreditation recommendation is then raised to the Accreditation Review Committee, who has the authority to grant to decline accreditation. After reviewing the summary and considering the Accreditation Committee’s recommendation, the Accreditation Review Committee (ARC) makes a final accreditation determination.
