In May 2017, the College’s DAP Committee approved changes to the medical peer review accreditation standards for polysomnography.

For new polysomnography facilities

All new facilities and services within an already accredited facility must proceed through the initial assessment process prior to service delivery or patient examinations.

For facilities undergoing significant change in service

An existing accredited facility must report any significant change in service related to: physical location (relocation/extensive renovation), equipment, leadership, interpreting physicians or surgeons, scope of testing and staffing model. Reporting occurs by completing and submitting the following form.

For relocating polysomnography facilities

All facilities relocating to a new address or within their existing building must proceed through the relocation assessment process prior to service delivery or patient testing.

For service cessation or facility closure

Facilities discontinuing an accredited service or closing completely must provide written communication in the form of a signed letter from the medical director confirming service cessation or facility closure and the effective date. Submit the written communication by email to polysomnography@cpsbc.ca.
