The following represent the possible accreditation categories into which an institution may be placed subsequent to deliberations of the AAALAC International Council on Accreditation. For reference, a mandatory item is, in Council's judgment, a serious deviation from the recommendations of the Three Primary Standards and/or AAALAC International's Reference Resources that must be corrected to achieve or continue accreditation. The significance of a mandatory item is ordinarily based on the Council's assessment of its potential to adversely affect the health, well-being or safety of animals or humans. The categories are ranked in increasing order of severity of the mandatory item(s) identified.
