How to Access the FACT Accreditation Report with Program Responses

Posted in :: 2020 Volume 9 :: Friday, December 11th, 2020

Some commercial cellular therapy product manufacturers may provide FACT-accredited programs the option to undergo a full site quality audit or provide a copy of the most recent FACT accreditation report and undergo an abbreviated audit. If choosing the second option, programs will want to provide manufacturers the final report complete with program responses to cited deficiencies. Program responses are an opportunity to demonstrate correction of deficiencies and ultimate compliance with FACT Standards.

FACT Accreditation Coordinators will provide a copy of the final Accreditation Report, with the program’s responses, when sending the Accreditation Certificate at the conclusion of the inspection and accreditation process. Additionally, in the current online accreditation portal, the complete report can be downloaded by opening the applicable Compliance Application and clicking “View: Accreditation Report” in the left navigation pane. A version of this report is also automatically saved in the Document Library when the accreditation process is complete.


Accessing the Accreditation Report in the legacy FACTWeb Portal

Not all programs have completed the accreditation process in the current online portal. For these programs, contact your FACT Accreditation Coordinator, who will be happy to email you a copy of the report.
