Regulatory Authority: State Health Care Accreditation Agency

The State Accreditation Service for Health Care Activities under the Ministry of Health (VASPVT) was established in 1996 to accredit healthcare institutions and organize medical product approvals. Since 2003, VASPVT has expanded its functions to include licensing, accreditation, and laboratory certification of personal health care institutions.

It has also been responsible for conformity assessment of medical devices, market supervision, and patient safety. VASPVT has also organized evaluations of health care technologies, issued licenses for public health care activities, and participated in joint-international evaluations of medical devices. The service has launched various initiatives to combat illegal activities and improve the quality of healthcare services.
