ISQua does no directly accredit hospitals or health or social care providers. To be eligible for assessment, an organisation must be an external evaluation organisation or a standards' developing body within the health or social care sector. Before an organisation can apply for accreditation, ISQua should first accredit at least one set of their standards
Please read the Principles and Guidelines for the Development of Health and Social Care Standards to determine if your standards are eligible for our programme.
In certain circumstances, external evaluation organisations that use standards developed by another body can apply for ISQua accreditation of their organisation. For example, an organisation could assess against standards developed by their Ministry of Health. Evidence must be provided to demonstrate the agreement which is in place between the external evaluation organisation and the standards developer.
