ANAB Appeal Process

An appeal is a request by an applicant or accredited entity for reconsideration of any adverse accreditation decision related to its desired accreditation status. These decisions include  granting, maintaining, extending, reducing, suspending, and withdrawing accreditation.

A nonconformity is not an accreditation decision. A nonconformity is the non-fulfillment of a requirement for accreditation. A nonconformity is not subject to appeal. Issues related to fulfillment of requirements for accreditation, including technical requirements, will be resolved in the context of addressing a nonconformity under applicable business unit and/or program-specific procedures, and not through the appeal process.
