A medical practice facility does not require separate professional accreditation and becomes accredited by virtue of a qualified practitioner having the authority and responsibility over the practice. In other words, accreditation is implied and simply follows the practitioner.
Similarly, ACE’s Embryology Facility Accreditation follows a Board Certified Embryologist (EMB).
In practice, this means that once an Embryologist files an affidavit with ACE, stating that he/she is affiliated with a specific Embryology Facility, this Facility automatically becomes eligible for accreditation and will remain qualified for renewal as long as this Embryologist has an association with the Facility.
This association does not imply that an Embryologist has to be a laboratory director or supervisor. It is sufficient that an Embryologist publicly discloses his/her affiliation with the specific Facility and has the authority over the embryology process whether on site or using alternative means, such as the Internet.
In order for an Embryology Facility to be accredited by the American College of Embryology, a Board Certified Embryologist (EMB) must submit an affidavit.
At present, ACE limits the number of Facilities that can be accredited under a Board Certified Embryologist to a maximum of 3.
Once an affidavit and accreditation fee have been submitted, your facility will be issued an electronic certificate that may be displayed on your web site.
