Handbook Policy Revisions/Updates

  1. AAAHC onsite process: Organizations are required to provide appropriate personal protective equipment (“PPE”) to each AAAHC survey team member.
  1. Organization surveyor requirements/denial of entry: If an organization maintains or establishes any mitigation requirements or policies applicable to AAAHC Surveyors, including, but not limited to, COVID-19 vaccination or testing prior to the survey, the organization must notify AAAHC. Where an organization fails to notify AAAHC of surveyor requirements or policies prior to a survey, and the organization denies entry to any AAAHC surveyor, the survey will be postponed. When a survey must be postponed because an organization failed to notify AAAHC of organization surveyor requirements, the organization is subject to the Survey postponement policies described in the applicable AAAHC Accreditation Handbook.
