(225 ILCS 10/2.27)
"Deemed compliant" means that an eligible agency is presumed to be in compliance with requirements, provided that the Department has determined that current COA standards are at least substantially equivalent to those requirements. This presumption of compliance may be rebutted by Department substantiated evidence to the contrary. The Department may require periodic certification of COA accreditation from eligible agencies.
