The American College of Cardiology (ACC) is a nonprofit medical association established in 1949 to advocate for quality cardiovascular care through education, research promotion, development and application of standards and guidelines, and to influence health care policy. The organization publishes a number of publications for members and the public including ACC News, Cardiology, the ACC Cardiosource Review Journal, CV News Digest, and the Journal of the American College of Cardiology (JACC). JACC also has two 'daughter' journals focused on Cardiovascular Interventions and Cardiovascular Imaging. The organization has 48 chapters in the United States and in Puerto Rico. Its current president is Ralph G. Brindis, M.D., M.P.H., F.A.C.C., and its CEO is Jack Lewin, M.D. The ACC has been called the "leading professional society for heart specialists."

RegulationsMentioned in 101 dockets; Submitted to 13 dockets
All data is based on documents downloaded from Regulations.gov. The first table shows mentions: all documents that include the name of the company anywhere in the document or document metadata. The second table shows submissions: all documents where the submitter metadata included the company name. Each table shows the top 10 dockets, ranked by number of occurrences.
Matches are based on a search for the company name. Variations in the company name, such as acronyms, nicknames or alternate names may cause documents to be missed. The mention of a company name in a document may be incidental and does not necessarily indicate that the company has any relevance to the document. Company names that are common English words may erroneously match with text that is not referring to the company.
Not all agencies submit public comments to Regulations.gov. For a list of participating and non-participating agencies see here. Agencies that do submit to Regulations.gov have varying levels of accuracy and completeness.
