    • Accreditation Criteria
      • The Accreditation Criteria are divided into three levels. To achieve Provisional Accreditation, a two year term, providers must comply with Criteria 1, 2, 3, and 7–12. Providers seeking full Accreditation or reaccreditation for a four-year term must comply with Criteria 1–13. To achieve Accreditation with Commendation, a six-year term, providers must comply with all Accreditation Criteria.
    • Standards for Commercial Support: Standards to Ensure Independence in CME Activities
      • The 2004 ACCME Standards for Commercial Support: Standards to Ensure Independence in CME ActivitiesSM (Accreditation Criteria 7–10) are designed to ensure that CME activities are independent and free of commercial bias. The Standards impose stringent restrictions on CME providers’ interactions with drug /device companies and other companies the ACCME defines as a commercial interest. The ACCME allows providers to accept company funding for CME activities, but prohibits any commercial influence, direct or indirect, over CME content.
      • Building on guidelines that the ACCME first issued in 1987 and formally adopted in 1992, the 2004 ACCME Standards for Commercial Support comprise six Standards: Independence, Resolution of Personal Conflicts of Interest, Appropriate Use of Commercial Support, Appropriate Management of Associated Commercial Promotion, Content and Format without Commercial Bias, and Disclosures Relevant to Potential Commercial Bias.
      • When making decisions about implementing the ACCME Standards for Commercial Support, the ACCME says that CME providers must always defer to independence from commercial interests, transparency, and the separation of CME from product promotion. In other words, the purpose of CME must be to serve physicians’ learning and practice needs and to promote public health.
