CAAS Releases GVS V2.0 Draft for Public Comment
The Commission on Accreditation of Ambulance Services (CAAS) formed a Ground Vehicle Standard Revision Committee to develop V2.0 of the GVS document. This Committee and associated GVS Work Groups have now spent thousands of man-hours updating and revising the GVS V2.0 Standard for new ambulances. In addition, V2.0 now includes a comprehensive standard for Remounts.
To ensure that anyone with an interest in the medical transportation industry has a voice in the Standard revision process, CAAS has now posted the proposed draft GVS V2.0 standard for public comment. This draft standard will be posted for 60 days, commencing January 25, 2019. Interested parties who care to comment on the draft should complete the online feedback form and submit their input during this public comment period.
The GVS Committee will review all submissions received during the period and will consider each of the comments received. Following this first round review, a second 60-day public comment period will be held to give further opportunity to comment on any items that may have been changed from the first draft as part of the process. The CAAS GVS V2.0 document has a scheduled effective date of July 1, 2019.
