ESTABLISHING NEMT INDUSTRY STANDARDS
NEMTAC is dedicated to ensuring safe medical transportation and has a role in the establishment of American National Standards that affect our industry. Our standards development activities have a broad scope, ranging from high-quality customer care, safe vehicle operations, life safety and ethical business practices
As the voice of the U.S. standards and conformity assessment system, the American National Standards Institute (ANSI) empowers its members and constituents to strengthen the U.S. marketplace position in the global economy while helping to assure the safety and health of consumers and the protection of the environment.
The Institute oversees the creation, promulgation and use of thousands of norms and guidelines that directly impact businesses in nearly every sector.
ANSI is also actively engaged in accreditation - assessing the competence of organizations determining conformance to standards.
CALL TO ACTION
Whenever a new NEMT standards project is initiated, NEMTAC will form a Standards Development Committee from the Advisory Board members to write a new standard or revise an existing standard.
You may apply to be part of the Standards Development Committee. Participation is based on the need for particular interest categories, which are users of NEMT services, vendors of NEMT equipment and vehicles, and those who have a general interest in NEMT safety standards, such as academia, consultants, and other governmental agencies.
NEMTAC will issue a press release once a standard is developed and open for public comment, so stay connected and join our mailing list!
