JAS-ANZ introduced the preceding health care management systems scheme as JAS-ANZ Procedure 31. This procedure enabled health care organisations to demonstrate conformance with the Core Standards for Safety and Quality in Healthcare as a means of demonstrating appropriate levels of safety and quality in the services they provide to patients.
Procedure 31 was reviewed by a JAS-ANZ Health Care Technical Committee and republished as the National Safety and Quality Health Service (NSQHS) Scheme. This scheme is the second part of a family of schemes that share common requirements as detailed in Part 1. The requirements of this scheme are detailed in:
Heath Care Management Systems (HCSMS) Scheme Part 1 – Common requirements for bodies providing audit and certification of health care service management systems; and
National Safety and Quality in Health Service (NSQHS) Scheme Part 2 – Additional requirements for bodies providing audit and certification/accreditation to the National Safety and Quality in Health Service (NSQHS) Standards.
An application pack, application form and other relevant material is not available on this site. These documents are available through our SharePoint portal. If you are a body that we currently accredit, you can access this information through the Shared CAB Portal. If you are a new applicant, please complete an application enquiry form. Once this form is submitted, the Secretariat will contact you to advise the next steps. For other stakeholders, please submit your inquiry through the online feedback form.
