IPEM, NHS England and the UK Accreditation Service (UKAS) recently released a joint statement regarding the Improving Clinical Engineering and Physical Science Services (iCEPSS) initiative and more recently UKAS released a call for potential pilot sites and specialisms. This is a long-awaited step forward for a project that started in 2013.
The decision to base the accreditation on BS70000 provides a route to wider standardization of the accreditation of healthcare science services.
There are a number of documents and links to view in relation to iCEPSS:
Dr Peter Jarritt, former IPEM President, is chair of the UKAS iCEPSS Technical Advisory Committee.
