AOPO has developed organizational and ethical standards for OPOs, offering a voluntary accreditation program to its members. This peer review process, conducted at the OPO, helps assure compliance with federal regulations as well as AOPO standards. The period of accreditation is three years, after which the OPO must meet reaccreditation conditions to maintain its status. Currently, 53 OPOs are accredited by AOPO. Twenty surveys are expected to be conducted by the end of 2013.
AOPO has a confidential voluntary program whereby OPO Executive Directors can access a group of experienced individuals both within and outside of AOPO, referred to as the Technical Assistance Program, or TAP. This group will provide technical assistance for the sole purpose of maximizing organ donation in the OPO's service area.
