What is NAC?
The National Accreditation Commission (NAC) leads the AICPA accreditation process and creates an environment that fosters the efficient and effective development of marketplace recognition for CPA-provided specialty services.
How it Works
Recommends and implements specific credential programs, including the evaluation of business plans for each accreditation effort.
Provides a continuous and rigorous oversight process of existing programs, including assessment of domestic and global market and CPA/CPA equivalent acceptance, competition, and the appropriateness of entry and maintenance requirements.
Oversees the sunset of credentials if appropriate.
