Proposed Changes to IAC Adult and Pediatric Echocardiography Standards Now Open for Public Comment Through May 1, 2017 - COMMENT PERIOD CLOSED

MARCH 1, 2017 | In keeping with the IAC's continued commitment to streamlining and simplifying the accreditation process, we are pleased to announce that the public now has the opportunity to comment on proposed changes to the IAC Standards and Guidelines for Adult Echocardiography Accreditation and the IAC Standards and Guidelines for Pediatric Echocardiography Accreditation.

The Standards are reviewed periodically by the IAC Echocardiography Board of Directors and revised as needed. As a component to the accreditation process, proposed Standards that have been approved by the Board of Directors are then posted to the IAC website for a 60-day public comment period. These proposed Standards include changes to the current Standards and/or the addition of new Standards

Beginning March 1, 2017, the public may visit the IAC website at intersocietal.org/iac/comment_period.htm to comment on any of the proposed Standards until May 1, 2017. In order to provide comments, the IAC Comment Form must be completed and submitted electronically by the provided deadline.

At the close of the comment period, the IAC Echocardiography Board of Directors will review any submitted comments, consider modifications as needed and vote for final approval of the Standards. Facilities are notified of changes to the published Standards, and the most current version of the Standards can be viewed or printed from the IAC Echocardiography website at intersocietal.org/echo/seeking/echo_standards.htm.
