About NATA and the ASA/NATA Sleep Disorders Services accreditation program
Scope of accreditation - service descriptors for sleep disorders services
Standards for Sleep Disorders Services were updated in December 2018.
These new Guidelines will be fully implemented on 1 July 2019, in the meantime there will be an overlap period for those services who are going through the accreditation process.

The revised Standard will apply to all new facilities being accredited after 1st July 2019, and will also apply to currently accredited facilities at the time of their next scheduled accreditation review.
To assist in this process, NATA have published a Transition Policy for the implementation of the ASA Standard for Sleep Disorders Services (2019), in addition to a Gap Analysis of the ASA Standard for Sleep Disorders Services. Both these documents are available for download from the NATA website under the announcement sections
