DHB - District Health Boards
Unsure what standards apply to you?
We're happy to help talk you through it.
Required: For all District Health Boards (DHBs) regulation requires Certification to the Health and Disability Service Standard NZS8134. The Ministry of Health (MOH) award the Certification and make decisions about the length of Certification including surveillance requirements. This is currently three years with a surveillance audit at the mid point.
Choice: Additionally, to stretch your organisation and focus on improvement, the EQuiP Accreditation can be useful. The period of Accreditation would align with the MoH Certification timeframes. Note: these can be completed together as a dual event.
