You need to know about the accreditation of a medical institution

Accreditation takes place in two stages:


  1. preliminary preparation of documents and their submission;


  2. support of inspection of the institution and obtaining a certificate

The accreditation period is in average from 3 to 5 months.


State accreditation of a medical institution (healthcare institution) is an official recognition of the status of an institution, confirming that it has the conditions necessary to provide a certain level of health care, and confirms its compliance with all established criteria.


As of today, accreditation is voluntary. Accreditation of an institution is carried out after obtaining a license to carry out business activities in medical practice. An accreditation certificate is issued for a period of up to 3 years.


Mandatory accreditation is carried out by institutions that intend to:
  • issue sick leaves;
  • provide services in the area of assisted reproductive technologies and transplantation
  • conduct clinical trials.
Since January 30, 2018, the accreditation of health facilities is voluntary. This means that most establishments are exempted from this obligation except for the establishments that issue temporary disability certificates and provide a number of other medical services.


In the past, accreditation was not available due to the wording of the Accreditation Procedure of a healthcare institution for newly formed medical facilities. This created problems for those institutions (including municipal and state ones) that were reorganized through corporate reconstruction or established anew. A similar problem arises for  a number of private medical facilities. This problem has now been resolved. Now institutions can be accredited immediately after obtaining a license.


The procedure for the provision of accreditation services of a medical institution


After agreeing on the terms of cooperation, an agreement is concluded on the provision of legal services. The client transfers the above data to the specialists of our company. After a preliminary analysis, our specialists along with the Client will prepare a complete package of documents for submission.


After our specialists have prepared all the necessary documents and had the Client sign them, the package of documents is submitted to the Main Accreditation Commission of the Ministry of Health of Ukraine.


After the appointment of an expert review, our specialists support this procedure.


At the time agreed upon with the Client, we will send the accreditation certificate form (for Clients located in other regions - by courier).


Upon completion of the work you will receive an accreditation certificate of the established standard on assignment of the corresponding category.

At your request, the typical procedure for accrediting a medical institution can be changed to the option that is more convenient for you.
