Affirmation / Renewal
Each Accredited DMC will receive a notice in July with instructions of how to file the annual Affirmation form or Renewal form, whichever is appropriate for the individual company's accreditation schedule.
An Accredited DMC will pay an annual maintenance fee of $125/year for the 2nd and 3rd year of their accreditation cycle. These fees will be submitted with the Affirmation Form and required documents.
After three years have been completed, an Accredited DMC will have to Renew their accreditation. There is a separate renewal application which emphasizes the documentation that the DMC is still in compliance with all current standards.
Annual Affirmation Deadline:
- 1 December
Annual Affirmation Form
In order to maintain DMC accreditation, the DMC must:
- Indicate compliance with all ADMC Program standards
- Submit appropriate documentation
- Submit the Verification of the Authenticity and Completeness of Affirmation Information Form signed by the principal or officer
ADMCs in the second and third year of their accreditation cycle must file this form and submit the supporting documentation by emailing it to firstname.lastname@example.org with the name of the company in the subject: COMPANY NAME Documents for ADMC Affirmation.
Annual Renewal Form
The Annual Renewal online form is for companies that have affirmed for two years. The organization will have to submit updated documentation after three years. It will be available here in July. Supporting documentation for the renewal form can be submitted by emailing it to email@example.com with the name of the company in the subject: COMPANY NAME Documents for ADMC Renewal.
Notice of Name Change, Transfer of Ownership, and/or Acquisition/Merger/Sale
Accredited DMCs are required to promptly notify the Commission regarding any information that reflects significant changed circumstance in the business, eligibility, geographic scope, corporate status or structure, insurance, financial, or any other information that is modified from that provided to the Commission with the initial application or renewal form, including but not limited to change of name, transfer of ownership, or the merger, consolidation, or acquisition/sale of the DMC. Such notice does not imply automatic transfer of Accreditation and may require the submission of a new application.
Revocation of Accreditation Status
Accreditation may be subject to revocation for the following reasons:
- The DMC has made a material misstatement on the application or in any representation to the Commission, whether intentional or unintentional
- The DMC no longer meets one or more of the ADMC Program Standards
- Non-payment of accreditation affirmation or re-accreditation fees.
No DMC's accreditation shall be revoked unless the accredited company is first notified of the Commission's intent to review its status in a manner that delivery of such notice can be validated, and the reason for which the organization's accreditation is being reviewed. The DMC will be given thirty (30) days to correct the problems that the Commission identifies as jeopardizing the DMC's accredited status. If, in the Commission's determination, the problems have not been corrected after thirty (30) days, accreditation will be revoked. This decision may be appealed to the DMC Accreditation Appeals Committee. The company may reapply for accreditation no less than twelve(12) months after the date of the revocation of accreditation or at any time thereafter.
If an ADMC knowingly falls out of compliance with the ADMC program standards during its accreditation period, the DMC must notify ADMEI. The DMC will be given sixty (60) days to correct the problem, and the procedure will continue as described in the above paragraph. Failure to notify ADMEI under such circumstances may result in revocation of accreditation.
