In keeping with the IAC’s continued commitment to streamlining and simplifying the accreditation process, we are pleased to announce that the public has the opportunity to comment on proposed changes to the IAC Standards and Guidelines for Cardiac Electrophysiology Accreditation. The majority of the changes are centered around the addition of a new testing area, Device Clinic, to be available for applicants in early 2022.
The Standards are reviewed periodically by the IAC Cardiac Electrophysiology 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 public comment period. These proposed Standards include changes to the current Standards and/or the addition of new Standards.
To Submit a Comment on Proposed Standards:
- Visit the IAC comment period website at https://intersocietal.org/comment-period/;
- Select the proposed Cardiac EP Standard you wish to comment on;
- A window will expand with the description of the existing Standard and the proposed change on the left (Note: Some Standards may require you to open as a PDF in a separate window to review the proposed additions/changes);
- On the right, fill in your name and comment in the boxes provided;
- Hit Submit.
At the close of the comment period, the IAC Cardiac Electrophysiology Board of Directors will review all submitted comments, consider modifications as needed and vote for final approval of the Standards.
The new Standards will be posted to the IAC Cardiac Electrophysiology website and available for download here.
