OUR MISSION: TO REDUCE THE BURDEN OF CARDIOVASCULAR DISEASE IN EUROPE
The EACVI aims at setting up a European standard in laboratory practices and patient care.
Since 2009, the EACVI offers Laboratory Accreditation in TTE, TEE and SE
The aim of the EACVI Laboratory Accreditation process is to raise quality standards of practice and equipment across Europe in a uniform manner. It is also designed to be used as an educational tool to improve the overall quality of the laboratories.
The EACVI Laboratory Accreditation process is also aimed at providing laboratories with standards against which they can benchmark themselves and may be used to reinforce a case for the purchase or upgrade of equipment and facilities to meet these standards.
What this process does not provide is a legal framework for practice but represents a voluntary process of standards that must function within national and local regulations. It is designed to apply to all ESC Member Countries whatever their model of provision of echocardiography.
To be eligible, echocardiography laboratories should meet the following requirements:
Please note: Laboratories which achieve accreditation status may be selected at random for a visitation from the Committee to verify the information on their submitted documents.
Module documentation should be completed in English while additional documents required (such as patient information leaflets, standard procedure documents...) can be submitted in the local language. This is providing that there is at least one National Society Reviewer for the laboratory’s country involved in the EACVI Laboratory Accreditation process (see list below which will be updated on a regular basis). Other ESC member countries should submit all documentation in English.
Countries with nominated reviewers for EACVI Laboratory Accreditation:
Applying for advanced accreditation does not guarantee being granted this grade. Your laboratory may receive a standard grade if it does not meet the requirements for advanced accreditation.
EACVI Laboratory accreditation applications are submitted online and can be done at anytime.
What happens after laboratories have submitted their application online?
The accreditation is valid for 5 years. Find out more about the re-accreditation process.
