Note on the review of the National Safety and Quality Health Service (NSQHS) Standards The Commission started a review of the National Safety and Quality Health Service (NSQHS) Standards in late 2014, to identify improvements to, and address gaps in, version 1 of the NSQHS Standards. Pilot and consultation processes for the draft Version 2 of the NSQHS Standards were conducted in 2015, with a follow-up consultation process on the costs and benefits of implementation conducted through 2016-2017. The finalised Version 2 of the NSQHS Standards is scheduled for release in November 2017. Resources to support the implementation of Version 2, from 1 January 2019, will be developed.
