Central Fabrication Accreditation Guide

October 2023


Application Information

Once your facility has met the eligibility criteria and meets the standards, you are ready to submit your application and the required documents. We recommend that you do not submit your application until you are ready for your onsite survey.

Please complete the application and include the application fee. An incomplete application or missing documentation will delay the accreditation process.

You’ll need to submit the following:

  • Central Fabrication Accreditation application
  • Application and survey fee (non-refundable)
  • Copies of all non-ABC certifications and professional staff licenses—it is NOT necessary to submit copies of any ABC credentialed staff certificates
  • Legal documentation of your business’s ownership (e.g. Articles of Incorporation)

If necessary, ABC may require additional information. All information and application materials are confidential and only used by ABC and its survey contractors or as required by law. All submissions are handled in accordance with HIPAA regulations.

You will receive an email confirmation once your application has been received and both an email and written confirmation once ABC determines that your application is complete.

Incomplete Applications

If your application is incomplete, ABC will send a request for additional materials via certified mail to the primary contact listed on your application. All requested materials must be received by ABC by the deadline indicated in the letter. If your application is still incomplete by the deadline, your application will be denied.

If your application is denied, you must reapply with a new application as well as application and survey fees. Incomplete applications will be processed after all required documents and/ or fees are received. Any delay in completing your application could result in a delay of your accreditation.

Falsification of Your Application

If ABC discovers that you provided false or misleading information on your application, any or all of the following actions may be taken:

  • Denial of the application
  • Denial of reapplication for accreditation
  • Revocation of any existing ABC credentials from individuals who were found to be responsible for the falsification of the accreditation application
  • Referral of the incident to ABC’s Professional Discipline Committee
  • Possible legal action
