Weekly Compliance Tips

What kind of documentation should my organization be using when it comes to tracking commercial support?

The ACCME requires that accredited providers be able to show both income and expense statements for each CME activity.  They further specify as follows:

Significant sources of income: Including income from commercial support, advertising and exhibit fees, tuition and registration fees, internal budget allocations and any other source that represents greater than 20% of total income.

Significant expenses: Including staff salaries, meeting costs, honoraria, faculty travel expenses and any other item that represents greater than 20% of total expense.  


Can we achieve commendation with ACPE Standards or only with ACCME Standards?

As does the ACCME, the ACPE will soon be using a menu approach for recognition for Accreditation with Commendation so as to be as flexible as possible to its range of provider types.  Scheduled to launch January 1, 2021, the commendation option will provide accredited CPE providers the chance to demonstrate that they surpass the minimum accreditation requirements.  The commendation criteria, rubric, and the necessary process to pursue Accreditation with Commendation will be distributed soon.
