Committee Mission

The mission of the Accreditation Committee is to recommend to the Executive Committee policies, programs, and actions in the area of any/all issues pertaining to regulatory matters, practices and codes with both inter- and intra-national implications. This involves procedures related to all activities of the other Standing Committees. In its vigilance to avoid duplication of efforts, WBMT members agreed early (2009) that AHCTA would fulfil the role of the WBMT Accreditation Committee.

Meetings & Teleconfereces

The Accreditation Committee meets by teleconference at least quarterly and in person once or twice per year, as international conference attendance permits.
