ACHS Accreditation Updates

ACHS Accreditation Updates provide important additional information about ACHS programs or amended program requirements.

In addition to being made available via this webpage, ACHS Accreditation Updates are communicated directly to ACHS members by email, and information on their release is also included in the ACHS News. It is recommended that members view all Updates as soon as they are released and retain them with their product guides for easy reference.

Please note: For updates relating to the National Safety and Quality Health Service (NSQHS) Standards ONLY, please access the website of the Australian Commission on Safety and Quality in Heath Care:

For updates that apply to ACHS accreditation against BOTH EQuIPNational and the NSQHS Standards, please see "EQuIPNational Updates", below.

Big thank you for the excellent webinar on NSQHS Standard 5 on Tuesday 17 March. The topic was presented in a very clear way with lots of examples of what surveyors would expect to see when on site.
