Date Change: ARC's New Accreditation Tool Launching in November 

The debut of ARC’s new Accreditation tool slated for release on Wednesday, October 21, has been moved to November 18, 2020.  

Underlying platform changes that were scheduled to be done in November would have required taking the new tool offline when activity would have been high, so to make for a smoother transition to the new system, the decision was made to complete that work before launch. 

Information about the new tool can be found in the blog post "A New Platform to Help Travel Agencies Better Manage Their ARC Accreditation.

We apologize for any inconvenience. For a refresher on the tool's capabilities and workflows, a training session will be scheduled closer to the new release date and announced soon. 

If you have questions, please contact ARC’s Customer Care Center at 855-816-8003 or at
