CAAS Releases GVS V2.0 Draft with Public Comments #1

CAAS Releases GVS V2.0 Draft for Public Comment Period #2

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 period #2. Following completion of Public Comment period #1 and a review of the comments by the GVS Committee, modifications to the GVS V2.0 draft have been made and are highlighted in yellow within this new draft.

This draft standard will be posted for 60 days, commencing April 10, 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 #2 which concludes June 10, 2019. Only comments related to these specific changes can be submitted in this period. The time frame for all other comments is closed.

The GVS Committee will review all submissions received during the period and will consider each of the comments received. The CAAS GVS V2.0 document has a scheduled effective date of July 1, 2019.
