UNE 179002 Quality Management Systems for Healthcare Transport Companies

​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​Quality and added value in healthcare transport

Certification of quality management systems for healthcare transport companies guarantees compliance with the requirements of the Standard ISO9001 in the most critical processes of patient transportation.

The certification has been developed in accordance with the StandardUNE 179002:2011, which includes advice and recommendations, developed specifically for companies in the healthcare transport sector.

It reflects all the requirements of the Standard ISO 9001 adapted to the sector, according to the following plan:

  • Introduction.
  • Definitions of interest for a better understanding of the document.
  • Requirements of a quality management system based on the Standard ISO 9001, including the appropriate recommendations so that healthcare transport companies can fulfil the aforementioned requirements.
  • Informative appendices with sample formats and records which are referred to throughout the text.
​​​

The Quality Management System certification for Healthcare Transport is aimed at any company in the sector, regardless of its structure, organisation, owner, size, type of service provided, location or locally-used approaches.

Compliance with the requirements of the Standard UNE 179002 automatically guarantees compliance with the requirements of the Standard ISO 9001, therefore, obtaining two certifications simultaneously in the same auditing process results in significant savings for the healthcare transport company, while also increasing the benefits of holding these two certifications.

Once the auditing process has been successfully completed, if the integrated system meets the requirements of the Standard UNE 179002, the organisation obtains:

  • The AENOR Quality Management System Certificate for Healthcare Transport.
  • A licence to use AENOR's Mark for Quality Management Systems in Healthcare Transport

Furthermore, organisations with management systems certified by AENOR have free access to the AENORnet and a subscription to the monthly UNE magazine.
