Requirements designed to ensure that accredited continuing education serves the needs of patients and the public, is based on valid content, and is free from commercial influence. The Standards comprise five standards: Ensure Content is Valid; Prevent Commercial Bias and Marketing in Accredited Continuing Education; Identify, Mitigate, and Disclose Relevant Financial Relationships; Manage Commercial Support Appropriately; Manage Ancillary Activities Offered in Conjunction with Accredited Continuing Education. Released in December 2020, the Standards for Integrity and Independence replace the Standards for Commercial Support. The Standards have been adopted by Joint Accreditation and the co-founders of Joint Accreditation (ACCME, ACPE, and ANCC), as well as other accrediting bodies in the health professions.

Probation is given to jointly acredited providers that have serious problems meeting the Joint Accreditation requirements. Providers on Probation are required to submit progress reports. Jointly accredited providers may have their status changed to Probation if their progress reports do not demonstrate correction of noncompliance issues. Most providers on Probation implement improvements quickly, return to a status of Joint Accreditation, and sustain compliance. Providers cannot remain on Probation for longer than two years.
Providers that successfully achieve Joint Accreditation with Commendation may be awarded a six-year accreditation term. The six-year term will be available only to providers that achieve Commendation; providers that demonstrate compliance with JAC 1–12, but do not demonstrate compliance with the commendation criteria, will receive a four-year term. Organizations are eligible to seek Joint Accreditation with Commendation if they are currently jointly accredited or they are seeking initial joint accreditation and have been previously accredited by at least one of the following: ACCME, ACPE, or ANCC.
