COA’s Hague Accreditation Commission is the decision-making body that reviews the Pre-Commission Review (PCR) reports and adoption service provider responses in order to confer accreditation or approval.

The Commission is comprised of qualified individuals with professional backgrounds that enable thoughtful and skillful participation in the decision-making process. They must have extensive experience in order be selected or are senior management staff. COA’s President/CEO appoints individuals to serve as Commissioners for a defined period of time.

Prior to a meeting, Commissioners are provided with an adoption service provider’s PCR report and response, and any additional information necessary to render a decision. The Commission reviews all documentation in a manner free from conflict of interest. Commissioners with an actual or apparent conflict of interest must recuse themselves from any deliberation or vote.

At the commission meeting, a quorum of Commissioners reviews the reports and makes decisions regarding an adoption service provider’s accreditation or approval status. If the Commission determines that you have demonstrated substantial compliance with the standards and meet the criteria for accreditation, approval, or renewal you will receive notification of that decision. COA will provide you with a Post-Commission Report after the meeting if additional information is required.
