On April 1st, 2008, the Commission for Motion Laboratory Accreditation, Inc. began accepting applications for laboratory accreditation from the general public. Use this website and specifically this application portal to submit your completed application, including all supporting material.

A downloadable copy of the application form and review criteria can be obtained by following the links below:

  • Application Review Criteria (PDF)
  • NEW!! Applicant Manual (PDF)


If you are a new applicant, you must register first. If you are an applicant representing a laboratory that previously had a user login and application forum created, please login with those credentials. If for some reason those credentials are no longer known or belonged to someone no longer representing your laboratory, please reach out to one of the CMLA board members directly.

Once your registration has been processed, a online forum will be created to receive your application materials. Please see the following for uploading your initial application forms to your assigned forum:

An application fee of $975 USD is required to process your application and begin the review process.

A check or money order made payable to the Commission for Motion Laboratory Accreditation, Inc. should be mailed to:


Commission for Motion Lab Accreditation, Inc. (CMLA)
c/o Wendy Pierce
Children's Colorado
4125 Briargate Pkwy Box 520

Credit cards are not accepted at this time.


Public Notice: The CMLA application fee supports website maintenance, upgrades, hosting, and general operational costs, and changed for the first time since 2008 in January 2024. Costs for these services continue to rise, necessitating a phased fee increase over the next year. The current $975 USD application fee will be increased to $1200 USD on January 1, 2025. This fee increase schedule has been approved by the CMLA Board of Directors in order to continue to provide accreditation services to the clinical motion analysis community.


If you are planning to submit a new or continuing CMLA application review in 2025, consider paying your application fee before January 1, 2025 to take advantage of the current $975 USD fee schedule. You do not need to upload your application at the time of your fee payment; it will be considered a prepayment and will be applied once your application is submitted. If you do not prepay your application fee at the current rate, the application fee in effect at the time of your submission will be required. If you prepay your application fee but later decide to not seek accreditation, the application fee will be fully refunded if requested in writing by a representative of your organization.


It is important to remember that the application review will not begin until all of the application materials are uploaded and the application fee has been received.


For more information on the mechanism for submitting the application, expected time for completion of the review, and policies governing the review process, please browse the FAQ tab, the Policies tab, or review the posts in the General Discussion Forum.
