After the Accreditation Commission has made a decision to award accreditation or approval, renew accreditation or approval, or deny or refuse to renew accreditation or approval, you will receive a notification letter. This notification letter will advise you that a decision has been made.
Important Note: An adoption service provider may not identify itself in any way as accredited, temporarily accredited, or approved prior to official notification of the decision on its status.
If you have been granted accreditation, approval, or renewal you will receive:
- a formal notification letter stating that you have been accredited or approved and your expiration date;
- a Hague Accreditation/Approval Certificate; and
- a Final Accreditation or Approval Report (FAR), which provides a complete set of ratings for all applicable standards
Note: All related accreditation or approval fees must be paid before the formal notification documents are sent.
COA views Hague accreditation or approval as a monumental achievement and recommends that you celebrate and publicize this milestone with your staff, community, and stakeholders. We provide you with a sample press release that can be revised and disseminated to all interested parties in order to assist you with this celebration.
