Proposed Standards for Review - Tell Us What You Think!

As you may know, the ACA standards are being reviewed, slightly revised, and reorganized for the next version of the standards to be used beginning in 2019. We invite and encourage you to review the documents.

After an initial posting of draft standards and placements, the National Standards Commission is sharing revisions made to some standards as well as proposed applicability of the current Site/Food Service Standards and the Health and Wellness Standards for specific audiences. 

Please review the PDF or Word documents (linked below as well).

The open comment period is now closed. Please share any comments related to the revisions to the ACA standards and accreditation process directly with Rhonda Mickelson at


INITIAL DRAFT of Standards posted November 2017 are the bottom two documents immediately below.
