About the Program
The American Chiropractic Association (ACA) Endorsement Program is designed to inform the public or profession as to the quality of a product or service. It focuses on products that have a chiropractic-related benefit for consumers and doctors of chiropractic (DCs). An endorsement is granted after thorough review, analysis, testing and evaluation by ACA’s Business Development Advisory Board (BDAB) and final approval from ACA’s Board of Governors.
The evaluation period takes approximately three months depending on the amount of time required to examine and evaluate each product. The process can include consultation with doctors who specialize in areas of practice that closely relate to the product presented for endorsement consideration. After the initial 30-90 day evaluation period, the advisory board will meet to discuss results and determine if additional time is required for the evaluation process.
