Guidelines for Use of ACC Accreditation Services Seals

Only facilities that are currently accredited or certified by ACC are entitled to display our seals and to announce their accreditation/certification status.

By adhering to the standardized use of our seals, you will help ensure the proper display of these valuable and visually powerful communications tools. Artwork for the seals is supplied in the Marketing Kit that is sent within three weeks of your official notice of accreditation or certification.

Minimum size for reproduction of seals is two inches in height. Seals may be reproduced in black and white, but only when use of ink colors are restricted or the use of the primary Pantone color noted for each seal below creates a design conflict.


Marketing Your ACC Accreditation

We invite the facilities that we work with to learn more about how to market an earned Accreditation or Certification. Additionally, those facilities that have earned an ACC accreditation or certification will receive an Accreditation Marketing Kit within three weeks of the date of the announcement of their accreditation/certification status. The kit contains a copy of our Accreditation/Certification Marketing Policy.
