The team approval process is managed by the Commission on Approval of Teams. The Commission reviews applications from teams in the United States and Canada each year. Teams are approved for five years.

ACPA Approved Teams must complete an Annual Self-Audit Report to attest to their continued compliance with The Standards for Approved Teams.  The 2020 annual listing fee of US$180 is due along with the self-audit.  Team fees cover the administration of the ACPA Team Approval program.
