FACT Accreditation Portal Launch Update
On October 1, 2018, FACT launched its new Accreditation Portal. FACTWeb applications already in progress must be completed in the legacy portal but all new applications are created in the new FACT Accreditation Portal. At this time 60% of our applicants have been migrated to the new portal. All of the beta test organizations for Annual Reports, Renewal Applications, and Eligibility Applications have completed their applications. The Compliance Application process is significantly longer, but three FACT beta testers have completed their compliance applications, inspections, and were reaccredited through the new portal.
A very special thank you to all the beta test organizations and their inspectors that continue to clear the way for other organizations and provide valuable feedback regarding their portal experience.

With the launch of the new portal, FACT published How-To Guides to help mitigate the inevitable learning curve that comes with new technology. These guides are available in the Portal Resource Center. Since the launch, FACT published two new training videos to ensure applicants have on-demand access to portal training materials for every learning style.
*As an inspector, reviewing the training materials in the Portal Resource Center is strongly recommended.
