Update on cancellation of DAP and NHMSFAP assessments

The DAP and NHMSFAP are extending the cancellation of assessments through June 30, 2020. Facilities will be notified if there are further cancellations of accreditation site visits beyond the June 30, 2020 date.

The DAP Committee and NHMSFAP Committee are expediting procedures as follows:

  • Automatic six-month extensions for accreditation certificate expiry dates will be given for any facility where the accreditation site visit has been cancelled due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
  • All variance requests associated with non-high-risk standards will be adjudicated directly by the deputy registrar to ensure the quickest possible turnaround time for decisions.
