Due to the rapid growth in sleep medicine's professional content, several countries have recognized sleep medicine as an independent specialty. The practice of sleep medicine and the demand for this service in Asian countries are expanding. At this point of growth, the accreditation of sleep medicine specialists is paramount to patient care and the training of physicians and technologists.

This taskforce developed Asian accreditation practice guidelines for sleep medicine physicians and technologists. This paper presents the newly approved Asian accreditation practice guidelines for sleep medicine physicians and technologists by the ASSM.
