Coronavirus Updates

NABP is closely monitoring the effects of coronavirus (COVID-19) on our scheduled surveys and inspections.

Accreditation and Inspection Applicants

We are monitoring and applying current federal, state, and local guidelines and recommendations to determine how to safely conduct surveys and inspections.

We are NOT currently performing surveys or inspections in the following states:

State List Updated November 29, 2021 – The list will be updated as additional information becomes available. Reference the list again at a later date if your state is listed. In some cases, onsite surveys and inspections can be performed in an unapproved state if the specific county or city of the facility has lower positive COVID-19 cases than the state’s reported average. We will contact facilities in locations where a survey or inspection may occur.

On July 2, 2020, we provided requirements to all accreditation and inspection customers that would need to be met to resume onsite surveys and inspections due to the COVID-19 pandemic. These published requirements are being updated and are as follows.

We will continue to monitor federal, state, and local guidelines and follow CDC recommendations. Once we determine it is safe for our staff or contractors to go into the facility, the following requirements apply.
