International Accreditation Policy & Fees

The NAACLS Board of Directors has voted to open the accreditation process to laboratory programs located outside the United States. Such programs are invited to have the chief executive officer submit letters of intent to seek NAACLS accreditation. All materials sent to NAACLS regarding accreditation must be submitted in English.

The steps of the accreditation process for international programs are identical to the steps for United States programs and are found in the Guide to Accreditation. These include an application for accreditation, attainment of serious applicant status, submission of a self study document, and an on-site evaluation. 

The program is expected to meet the Standards as defined by NAACLS. The sponsoring academic institution must be accredited by a regional or national accrediting agency for higher education and must be authorized under applicable law to provide post secondary education and to grant the appropriate degree. 

The program is expected to pay the application fee, all costs associated with the on-site visit (including business class air fare), plus an annual fee. The fee schedule follows:
