Access date is given by putting the word “Accessed” followed by the Day Month (Shortened) Year the work was accessed/viewed. Example: Accessed 20 Aug 2016.
n. The date when records that have been closed or restricted become generally available for use by the public. A time stamp associated with a file indicating the last time the file was viewed. The portion of a bibliographic citation for a website indicating when the page, as cited, was known to be current.
APA Style usually does not require an access date. You never need to include one when citing journal articles, e-books, or other stable online sources.
The citation should conclude with the word “Retrieved,” followed by the date you accessed the website, written in the format of “month day, year.” The date should then be followed by a comma, the word “from,” and the Web address of the website accessed.
MLA uses the phrase, “Accessed” to denote which date you accessed the web page when available or necessary. It is not required to do so, but it is encouraged (especially when there is no copyright date listed on a website).
Most website citations in APA 7th Edition do not require a retrieval date. Unfortunately, however, determining which situations require this date can be challenging. If you use a stable, archived version of a web page, no retrieval date is needed.
