Compliance Timeframe

The Joint Review Committee on Education in Radiologic Technology (JRCERT) limits the response time for sponsors and programs to comply with the relevant accreditation standards by establishing the following maximum timeframe for completion:

i. eighteen (18) months from the date of notice of non-compliance if the program is at least one (1) year but less than two (2) years in length;
ii. twenty-four (24) months from the date of notice of non-compliance if the program is two (2) years or longer in length.

Consistent with Policy 11.400, Procedures 11.404A and 11.404B and United States Department of Education (USDE) regulations, the program must be in compliance with all relevant accreditation standards by the time frames listed above, or identify mitigating circumstances hindering the attainment of this outcome.  If the program does not document compliance within the specified timeframe, the JRCERT must withdraw the program’s accreditation unless the JRCERT, for good cause, extends the period for achieving compliance.
