Abstract: IN 1973 THE NATIONAL ADVISORY COMMISSION ON CRIMINAL JUSTICE STANDARDS AND GOALS, WHICH HAD BEEN ESTABLISHED BY THE LAW ENFORCEMENT ASSISTANCE ADMINISTRATION IN OCTOBER 1971, PUBLISHED SIX VOLUMES OF STANDARDS COVERING THE ENTIRE CRIMINAL JUSTICE SYSTEM IN THE UNITED STATES. ONE OF THE SIX WAS SPECIFICALLY DIRECTED TO CORRECTIONS. THE BOARD OF DIRECTORS OF THE AMERICAN CORRECTIONAL ASSOCIATION (ACA) IMMEDIATELY BEGAN A COMPREHENSIVE REVIEW OF THE COMMISSION'S RECOMMENDED STANDARDS THROUGH AN ELABORATE COMMITTEE STRUCTURE INVOLVING REPRESENTATIVES FROM ALL LOCAL, REGIONAL, AND PROFESSIONAL CORRECTIONS GROUPS AFFILIATED WITH THE ASSOCIATION. TO COORDINATE THE EFFORT, A NATIONAL STANDARDS REVIEW COMMITTEE, COMPOSED OF BOARD AND ATLARGE MEMBERS, WAS APPOINTED BY THE PRESIDENT OF THE AMERICAN CORRECTIONAL ASSOCIATION. THIS DOCUMENT PRESENTS THE RESULTS OF THAT EVALUATIVE EFFORT. AFTER EACH OF THE 129 CORRECTIONAL STANDARDS, ONE OF THE FOLLOWING NOTATIONS INDICATING THE REACTION OF THE ACA IS PRESENTED: ACCEPTED; MODIFIED TO READ AS FOLLOWS; MODIFIED TO THE EXTENT THAT THE IMPLEMENTATION DATE IS CHANGED; AND, IN ONE CASE ONLY, REJECTED.
