NSQHS Standards (second edition)

Megan Reilly

The National Safety and Quality Health Service (NSQHS) Standards (second edition) have been endorsed by Health Ministers and will be launched in November 2017.

Assessment to the NSQHS Standards (second edition) will commence from 1 January 2019. Health service organisations will be informed of the transition arrangements for accreditation well in advance of implementation.

Fact sheets are now available on the Commission’s website.

In addition the Commission is also developing electronic monitoring tools for the 2nd edition Standards similar to those developed for the first edition.

To stay up to date on the NSQHS Standards (2nd edition), the release of documents sign up to the NSQHS Standards lists here.
