Notice

Description

ADVANCED NOTICE

Approximately 3 – 4 months prior to an onsite or offsite assessment

  • Onsite or offsite event each year depending on the EQuIP edition selected
  • Requirement for submission of materials to the Electronic Assessment Tool (EAT) prior to each activity

 

SHORT NOTICE

(SNAP)

Two (2) business days prior to an onsite assessment

  • Only onsite, annual assessments over your Membership period 
  • SNAP is reserved for organisations that are already ACHS International accredited
  • SNAP eliminates the requirement for pre-document submission and other preparation activities

We found that ACHS International was most suitable to us because the EQuIP program was clearly focusing on continuous improvement of care
