                                          REVISED JRCERT POLICIES

                                          At its April 2022 Meeting, the JRCERT Board of Directors approved several changes to policies,
                                          specifically related to compliance timeframes and Medical Dosimetry programs.
                                          JRCERT Policy 11.400, Procedure 11.405A now states that the JRCERT limits the response time
                                          for sponsors and programs to comply with the relevant accreditation standards by establishing
                                          the following maximum timeframe for compliance: 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.
                                          thirty-six (36) months from the date of notice of non-compliance if the program is two (2) years or
                                          longer in length.
                                          JRCERT Policy Statement 10.202 now identifies the following for Probationary Accreditation:
                                          “Probationary Accreditation may be awarded when an accredited program is subsequently
                                          determined not to be in substantial compliance with the relevant accreditation standards.
                                          Probationary Accreditation is usually limited to one (1) year but may not extend beyond three (3)
                                          years unless the program has been granted a good cause extension pursuant to Policy 11.400,
                                          Procedure 11.405B.”
                                          Good cause extensions are generally 12 months in length but may not exceed 24 months.
                                          Programs must identify mitigating circumstances, complete the good cause extension request
                                          form found here, and provide the associated fee.

                                          Finally, JRCERT Policy 11.400 Procedure 11.407Aiv. regarding Substantive Changes was updated,
                                          specifically for Medical Dosimetry programs. Medical Dosimetry programs must submit a
                                          Substantive Change and receive approval from the JRCERT Board of Directors if more than 50%
                                          of total clinical hours will be offered via distance delivery.
