Joint providership is when an ADA CERP recognized provider shares responsibility with another provider of continuing dental education for planning, organizing, administrating, publicizing, presenting, and keeping records for a CE activity. ADA CERP recognized providers may jointly plan and administer CE activities with another ADA CERP recognized provider or with a CE provider that is not recognized. Administrative responsibility for development, distribution, and/or presentation of continuing education activities must rest with the ADA CERP recognized provider whenever the provider acts in cooperation with providers that are not ADA CERP recognized.
Requirements for joint providership are described in the ADA CERP Joint Providership Policy (PDF) and in Standard IX.13-14 of the CERP Recognition Standards.
CERP recognized providers must inform potential participants of the joint providership arrangement through the use of the joint providership statement on publicity materials for any jointly provided CE activities, as specified in the CERP Regulations Governing the Recognition Process:
