The Accreditation Committee started to assess education providers and programs under the Health Practitioner Regulation National Law Act as in force in each state and territory (National Law) in 2014. The National Law requires the Committee to assess an education provider and program against the Accreditation standards; Medical radiation practice (accreditation Standards) and decide whether or not to accredit the relevant program. If the assessment finds the accreditation standards are substantially met, the Committee may impose conditions on the accreditation to enable the education provider and program to meet the outstanding standards in a reasonable time.

The Accreditation Committee has accredited the following programs with the imposition of conditions:
The Committee provides a report on each accreditation decision to the Medical Radiation Practice Board of Australia (MRPBA) and the MRPBA decides whether or not to approve the accredited program as providing a qualification suitable for registration. Some programs transitioned as MRPBA approved programs when medical radiation practice joined the national registration and accreditation scheme in July 2012. If an education provider is no longer accepting new enrolments to a program that transitioned as MRPBA approved, it is referred to as being 'in teach out'. If the education provider has advised that they will not be applying for assessment a program because it is in teach out, that program is not included in the Accreditation Committee’s schedule above. A list of MRPBA approved programs is published on the Approved programs of study page on the AHPRA website.
