Data Collection Timeline - Initial Certification

Can a firm apply for certification in May and request an on-site review in August if four months of data have not been collected for each performance measure?

Any examples are for illustrative purposes only.

The firm can apply for certification in May and request an initial on-site review in August; however, four months of data for each performance measure must be available at the time of the on-site review. Data collection can be retrospective. If the firm wants to have an on-site in August, they should collect data for the months of March, April, May, and June, or if available, July to comprise the four months needed.
