ACCREDITATION

Any institution (for-profit or not-for-profit) in the non-clinical tissue, bioskill, and related industries.

Organizations that are serious about taking their business to the next level get Accredited.

Accreditation represents a step for an Organization to elevate its operations in recognition of its peers. There are two levels of accreditation.

The Standards encompass both Level 1 and level 2 requirements for accreditation. For ease of understanding and assimilation of information, both Level 1 and Level 2 Standards have been merged together in each section of the Standards so the reader may gain a sense of the construction and relationship of each level of Standards to each other and the subject matter. When possible, these Standards have been constructed to be in compliance with applicable federal and state law and have been benchmarked against laws internationally in order to ensure that AMERA accredited institutions/organizations will be able to easily remain compliant regardless of where it conducts its activities.

All accreditation inspections/audits will be performed by independent quality consulting firms that have no competing interests in the activities inspected/audited.


Level-1 Accreditation

is the baseline level accreditation offered to Organizations that have demonstrated adherence to AMERA’s Level 1 Accreditation Standards. Level 1 Accreditation is the entry level accreditation and represents a large step for an Organization to make when attempting to elevate its operations in recognition of its peers. Organizations that have achieved Level 1 Accreditation have chosen to hold themselves to a higher standard and code of conduct and have started down a path that will help elevate their own credibility and elevate the credibility of the entire industry.


Level 2 Accreditation

is the highest level accreditation offered to Organizations that have demonstrated adherence to AMERA’s Level 2 Accreditation Standards. Organizations demonstrate adherence through on-site inspection and submission of objective evidence of adherence of Level 2 Standards to AMERA. Organizations that have achieved Level 2 Accreditation are the standard bearers for the industry.
