2015 Procedures Approved

On May 6, 2015, the NAAB Directors granted provisional approval to the NAAB Procedures for Accreditation, 2015 Edition.

A copy of the document is located in the Public Documents Folder under Resources for Programs2014 Conditions APR Preparation Resources. 

For visits conducted in 2016, teams will be composed of at least four individuals, each of whom represents one of the four constituent organizations of the NAAB: the AIA, AIAS, ACSA, and NCARB.

In 2016, the NAAB will continue to evaluate the use of smaller teams on visits for continuing accreditation and whether the duration of visits can be reduced. A final decision on these two matters will be made by the NAAB based on an evaluation of pilot visits conducted in 2015 and 2016. A final decision on this item can be expected in July 2016.

The final edited version, including infographics, will be published later this month. The edits will not materially affect the way visits are conducted.
