If an adoptive family is currently registered with a non-Accredited ASP, they are required to transfer their adoption to a Hague Accredited ASP no later than December 1, 2009.

Director General Lu also clarified; families currently using the I-600A and I-600 process (non-Hague) may continue with this process. Families are not required to transfer to the I-800A and I-800 process, unless deemed necessary by the United States Government.
